1979 BENELLI 900CC SEI (LOT 674)
FRAME NO. BO 11071
ENGINE NO. BGBO 11049
Despite a racing heritage second to none, Benelli was in trouble by the late 1960s, falling into the clutches of Argentinian industrialist Alejandro De Tomaso in 1971. Under De Tomaso's stewardship the revitalised company was soon grabbing the headlines with a host of new models, none more startling than the 750cc Sei (Six) of 1972, the world's first six-cylinder production motorcycle. Deliveries began in 1974, but the Benelli was soon overshadowed by Honda's own CBX1000 six. The Italian company responded in 1980 with the 900 Sei, improving the crankshaft and gearbox - weaknesses of the 750 – at the same time. Power went up to 80bhp, weight decreased, and the factory claimed a top speed for its new superbike of 134mph. The cycle parts too came in for revision, the 900 boasting cast alloy wheels and a rear disc brake in place of the discontinued 750's wires and drum brake. Sadly, the 900 had lost its predecessor's gorgeous sextet of exhaust pipes, but the upside was greatly improved ground clearance. Production of the 900 Sei ceased in 1987. Currently displaying a total of 6,727km (4,180 miles) on the odometer, this Benelli 900 Sei was in its present condition when purchased for the Morbidelli Museum some 30 years ago. There are no documents with this Lot.

£6,000 - 10,000
€6,700 - 11,000
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.
