    76 Benelli 750 SEI Help

    Hello!

    I just purchased this 1976 Benelli 750 SEI in hopes of getting it restored for my dad. I need to source many missing parts such as, complete headlight assembly, side markers (all) with mounting hardware, rear passenger seat rail, exhaust pipes, petcocks and the list goes on.

    Is there a manual on this bike?

    I would also like to send the cylinder head and engine out to have gone through, as the motor was seized when I got the bike. I was able to free the cylinder head from the block, by cutting the chain. When I opened her up, I noticed that a couple of the valve guides are damaged and will need to be replaced. I am trying to free the pistons, but they are stuck as well and could use some advice.

    I would also like to put over-sized pistons in it, any suggestions?

    What about an aftermarket ignition system?

    Fuel tank is rusted inside and I would like to know if anyone knows where I can send it to have cleaned out, without damaging the paint job?

    This is my first motorcycle restoration and I think I am in way over my head. Any help would greatly help and would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Tony

    I did a number of tanks earlier in the year with Caswells phenylnovolac tank sealer. It's expensive in the UK but cheap in the us. Don't let them fool you into thinking you might get two tanks done out of one tin but it seems to work ok. They tell you to clean the tank out with solvents and shaking with some old fasteners inside.

    You may be able to get it for much less if you know someone who works in the fuel station business as they use it in much larger quantities on forecourt tanks.
