    125 "Panther" model

    I'm starting in on a 1972 Benelli 125 "Panther" (USA named model). Its pretty similar to the "Banshee" 90cc .

    Anyway. no USA shop manual exists for this model. I have a User's Manual that gives light maint. tasks, and a parts book. But need the manual to do a engine overhaul.

    Anyone have a copy or link to, a shop manual you could share?
    thanks! Mike FBM

    pretty crusty eh?????

    Try the Benelli GB Club or the Dutch Benelli Forum site

    And what about this for a source of parts?

    Is there a UK crossover sister machine? panther is a us market name only.

    I got an email from Larry Wise, the owner of Cosmopolitan Motors; no "panther" shop manuals ever existed for the us market.

    I need UK/europe market manual.

    Benelli 125 Cross seems similar on www.benelliparts.de (Benelli Teileshop->select Benelli 125 Cross from list). Probably quite a few crossover parts from bikes of that era.

    Good luck. It is crusty but bet it will look great when you're done.

    Cheers,
    Lee.

    Steve from the GB Benelli club has done a great job restoring one of these.
    If you contact him though the club he may be able to provide you with some information and a copy of the manual.

    This is a 125 cross in the uk i have a 125 enduro which is an updated version of the Banshee. The Benelli 125 turismo has the same motor and pistons and a Benelli 250 2c has the same size piston aswell. your bike has a cast iron barrell later ones have alloy barrells with Nikasil lining. The later 125 parts fit the earlier bike good luck with your restoration

    That is "STEVE", I originally thought Steve Peace, buts its not. STEVE also has a few youtube videos on the bike. I noticed that he is in New Jersey, USA as I am. I have had no luck getting contact info.

    If anyone is in the Benelli GB club and can get him a PM for me....can you have him contact me on this list? or can get him my email? or vice versa???

    any help would be appreciated!

    Steve Peace should be able to put you in contact with him from the membership records of the club.

    Its seems that Steve doesn't know who the bike belongs too. I believe the bike is in NJ USA near me. Ive seen youtube with it. Its got NJ plates. I don't know the fellow.

    Membership at the club can't help......no one seems to know.

    If someone can put me in touch with the owner, I'd appreciate it.

    Also: the German site has a seat for 100euros. I'd like to know where the restorer got his seat.
