C.1955 BENELLI 125CC LEONCINO (LOT 566)
FRAME NO. L34034N
ENGINE NO. L/12967/S (SIDE COVER) L17611N (ENGINE MOUNT)
Italy's oldest surviving motorcycle manufacturer, Benelli was founded in 1911 by the six Benelli brothers. Now Chinese owned, although still based in its home town of Pesaro, Benelli is best known for its Grand Prix successes in the 1950s and 1960s when it secured two 250cc World Championships, and also for its outrageous six-cylinder road bikes of the 1970s. The Italian manufacturer has, of course, always produced less exotic fare such as the Leoncino two-stroke lightweight offered here, one of which won its class in the 1953 Moto Giro d'Italia. Unusually, the Leoncino was also built with a four-stroke engine. A model rarely seen outside its home country, this incomplete Leoncino is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed.

£150 - 250
€170 - 280
To be sold without reserve

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
