    Sit Stirling Moss rides a Benelli Sei 750!

    The name of Stirling Moss is so famous in the world of racing he needs to no into to a UK club! He was the honorary MC at the Santa Fe Concorso last week in the US, and I actually got him to sit on my 76 Benelli Sei and rev it up to 5K on the tach while I balanced a coin on the tank! Check out the pictures below. He says he lives in downtown London now so doesn't even own a car! Instead, he rides a little 50cc Honda scooter...

    I can still remember his famous Le Mans starts back in the 50s when he out-sprinted everyone across the track to get a huge start on Juan Miguel Fangio and others racing Jags, Ferraris, etc. Still quite the gentleman, taking time to chat about these 2-wheeled contraptions and risking getting Italian oil on his impeccable suit!

    More shots of Sir Stirling

    Best caption for this picture is: "So Vince, just what is the weather like way up there at 6 feet tall?"

    Balancing a coin at 5K revs!

    Sir Stirling loved the sound of those 6 cylinders at 5,000 RPM!

    Nice pics Vince! Any chance of some in high res for our mag ([email protected])? Sir Stirling Moss is Patron of the Benelli Club GB. I'm not sure of his history with Benelli but the story I heard was that he had a Benelli Motorella as a pit bike back in the day. I think he may have had another restored recently.
