Looks good.That Benelli engine looks even more agricultural than the Guzzis! Just look at those gears!Do they have any downfalls reliability vise? From the look of the parts it should go on forever! Unless it shakes itself to death Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
Unsurprisingly, the front brake is very similar to the one on the '74 Morini 3 1/2 Sport. Morini used a few M7 bolts in various locations as well.
On the two I've had here, the lever actually sits a bit lower yet, almost horizontal.Brochure photo shows it the same way.https://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/beneli/benelli_650_tornado.htm
Thanks Charlie, that is one low position, I hope the electric starter is reliable, don't fancy kicking it with the short throw kick pedal.
The sprag starter clutch on the one I owned back in the early '90s worked perfectly...until one day when it didn't. Just started slipping one day. I sold the bike before I had a chance to find out why. On the customer's bike shown, it worked flawlessly. The kickstarter works well too - since the stroke is so short, one kick really spins the engine over.
This is really fantastic... idk how you find the time to document these builds.. but it is much appreciated!Just curious, is this one to keep or sell when it's completed?
I was just getting ready to PM you with a link to a pair of carbs a guy on the Guzziriders (UK) passed on to me. Glad you found one.
Typical Italian bike of the era with no air filtration, I am going to see if I can keep the rubber boots and fit some form of air filter at the mouths of the boot that will be hidden behind the side covers
On my Tornado, I cut a 2" length of steel exhaust pipe that had an o.d. the same as or close to the i.d. of the rubber boot. Hose clamped that 1" into the opening of the boot, then installed UNI foam pod filters over the protruding 1".
