Just finished restoring this bike. I had a 250 2c when I was 17 in 1981 great bike an Italian RD 250. Benelli’s were originally only 230cc but I managed to source some aftermarket 250cc barrels and pistons. Am running in at the minute but the bike pulls much better at low revs

A pity you hardly see any of these old bikes on the road anymore.
I would have hurting wrists with the handlebar in that angle. ;)

Apart from Paso 906, I'm currently running on a Benelli 900 Sei (1981), a Benelli 750 Sei (1978) and a Benelli 500 Quattro (1974) plus a couple of "old" Moto Guzzis. But in past I had also all the Benelli fours (250 Quattro e 254 included) so, I can perfectly understand and share Benelliman's feeling with and love for these bikes. Nice job, Benelliman

My next project is a Benelli 250 Quattro it’s a 1976 mark 1 should be an interesting job working on miniature engineering.
