    I have been scouring the internet for rims/spokes/ anything wards riverside. Do you still have these rims? I'm doing a resto of my mother's old 66 wards riverside 125/ rebadged benelli. Any information you can give me would be much appreciated.

    Hey there. Yes, i still have these wheels. From the research I've done, they will fit the 125, 250,350 bikes of the 60s and even some early 70s stuff. Do you have a picture of the bike? It would help to confirm this.

    this is my moms bike when it was still in one piece. It's scattered throughout the shop right now . This is a 125. The hub and break looks right. I'm not so sure why it has a big and a small gear. But you do have two of them?

    That bike looks awesome!! Lots of potential there. To clear up some confusion. The two sprockets were there in case you had one of the "dual range" bikes they offered, but I have read that one of the two sprockets can be removed if preparing for fitment on one of their "sport" models, or in your case: your 125.

    Yes,i have two of them. Both identical and still sporting the tags from the factory in Italy.

    I remember seeing that H8621 part # in one of the parts manuals .I'll dig it up tomorrow and see if that helps.

    That's very interesting! I have a seat and tank (plastic) that match the ones on the workshop manual bike, and I've been wondering what they where for. Mystery solved. Just need the rest of the bike now...

    wow, thanks for the info. I found a stamp on the inside lip of the wheel that states that its 18 inches by two and a half inches in case you were still interested. I'm not currently building or restoring a Benelli at this time.
