1970s MO­TOBI 500 LS

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Project Hunter -

Mo­tobi-badged Benelli 500. En­gine last ran a year ago and seller has the OE pipes, which al­though shabby, could be used as pat­terns. Over­all con­di­tion is fair; every­thing is re­stor­able but you’d re­ally need to be a Mo­tobi nut. No in­ter­est at £2K, so there’s room for ma­noeu­vre on the price.

A bit spe­cial­ist, that. I’m not sur­prised it didn’t sell at £2K. Most of it looks eas­ily re­stor­able, but get­ting pipes made won’t be cheap, and it re­ally needs those to do it jus­tice, plus spares could well be an is­sue. If you must, go in at £1500.
