    Benelli 2C - Finished Restoration!

    Hi,

    I finished the restoration of my Benelli 2C a few days ago. I've written a blog on the restoration which can be found at:

    My thoughts too Rick.

    Just wish I could hear it running. Perhaps a link to youtube.

    Hi,

    Thanks for all the kind comments. In reply to Jerzy, it took the best part of two years to complete but like every restoration it went in fits and starts. If I had really knuckled down I could have done it a year ... but then it wouldn't have been fun.

    I hadn't thought of a YouTube video but as soon as the historic rego is through I'll take a quick movie. She sounds great and certainly feels okay in bursts up and down the driveway.

    Cheers,

    Tony.

    Looks every nice.
    Couple of questions what did you do with the switchgear rebuild it of fit alternatives and what's the front mudguard, doesn't look like an original one? Looks a lot better than the one on my bike!

    Hi,

    I had no switchgear left when I did this one so I used a set from a wrecked Yamaha YB100. I then found out repro YB100 stuff is available cheaper!

    That front mudguard is stock 2C but the fat Michelin tyre makes it look a bit cooler

    Cheers,

    Tony
