    Benelli 125 help needed

    I saved a Benelli from the crusher. Now I am trying to figure out what I saved.
    It is yellow and is labeled 125 2t Nuovo Leonceno.
    No idea how old (I suspect early to mid '60's) and have not been able to find one on the 'net that comes close.
    Checked the usual sources (Benelli web site included) and they do not have one that looks the same.
    Ideas??
    Curious dual sprocket on the rear; I assume one for off-road, one for on road.
    Thoughts?
    I do need some parts if I'm going to take it on for a restoration. Hence the inquiry.
    Thanks...Name:  125.jpg

    Don't forget to check EBay for parts. There is a surprising amount of stuff for old Benellis out there, especially if you go to EBay.it

    Good luck, and keep us posted.

    Cobra

    Sold as the 'Cobra' in the 'States.
    Nice picture here: Benelli Parts Volcano Dynamo Cougar Nuovo Leoncino Pesaro Italy Vintage Cosmo | Ask The Biker!

    Also, shares many parts with the badged Wards Riverside 125, which makes parts finding easier. http://bzisettas.blogspot.co.uk/2013...lli-cobra.html

    Thanks for all the input.
    I'm slowly realizing that the Wards parts and some small parts from other euro bikes will fit.
    ebay has some nice items I'm purchasing.
    It does appear that the motor will need to be torn down. It is a bit seized although I think it is just some piston ring/jug rust issues. Gonna pull the head and jug this weekend.
    Will all the 125 engine kits work? (i.e. wards, Benelli) I see a need for some rings and seals in my future.
    BTW, I am located just about in the center of Alaska.

    Your Benelli is the exact same bike as the Wards Riverside Scrambler. The engine is exactly the same as the Benelli Cobra, Wards Riverside 125, and Wards Riverside Scrambler. Awhile back the inventory of Cosmopolitan Motors (Benelli importer and parts supplier) was auctioned off and there were an unbelievable amount of parts available and they were being sold very cheap on ebay by various individuals who attended the Cosmo auction in PA. While there are still quite a few parts available, some items have started to dry up and the prices have gone up. You might also consider joining the Wards Riverside Yahoo Group. You'll find a lot of people that are very knowledgable about your Scrambler. Good luck with your restoration. Here's a before and after pic of a Wards Riverside 125 I restored awhile back -
