1974 Benelli 2C
We love an early 1970s two-stroke here on PS but this Benelli 250cc twin is going to need every ounce of that love to get it back in shape. That said it’s all there even if some of it appears quite far gone. The 2C really got into its stride with the disc-braked ally barrelled model of 1976 so this 1974 drum-braked one might not be the most desirable but could be pretty.
Gary says: That really is a project for someone with more specialist tastes and the vendor tells us he did have some trouble shifting it and the engine-less rolling chassis you see in the background. It’s hard to put a value on something like this because they really are a niche bike and there are many simpler restos out there – like Yam RDS.
