For Sale (posted 8-3-17)
1977 Benelli Elektronica 2C, 250cc 2 stroke.
Astonishingly, a genuine 16000km from new. Imported from Spain. Very nice condition. Runs beautifully. Offered at £2750, my costs so far.
P/ex considered, cash either way for pre 1960 British single or much earlier marque. Contact Richard on 07799730326 (photo to follow).
For Sale again (posted 28-2-17) my Talisman. It’s a fully restored 1954 TT1 (single carb) 250cc 2-stroke twin. It starts easily and runs so smoothly it’s a dream. It can cruise happily at 50mph and returns an amazing mileage on a tank of fuel. I made a lot of special tools and stuff for the restoration, all of which will go with the bike, including a box of useful parts, such as a spare pair of barrels.
The engine bottom end rebuild was entrusted to a guy who used to work on them in the 60s for a London dealer and who’s now the recognised top dog on Talisman motors. That includes the overhaul of the Wipac mag/generator.
The asking price is £4250 which could seem a lot for a lightweight machine, but these are rare and very well made motorcycles. I’m always ready to do a deal if I get a reasonable offer.
If anyone is interested in a very fine lightweight gentleman’s machine, then call me, Chris Jones, for a chat on 07768 268854 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
