I have a 1979 Benelli LS 500 and I am struggling to find any one that sells parts, at the moment I am looking for 2 x sets of points and 2 x condenser's, I would be grateful if anyone could put me in touch with a stockist of these parts [does anyone know if the Honda CB550 Timing plate, points and condenser will do the job?].
Thanks in advance for any help and advice.
I really appreciate all the help and priceless information you have sent over to me, I have been blown away with the help yourself and the people on this Forum have given me, without every ones help I wouldn't have had a clue where to start.
I had a massive amount of help a couple of weeks ago from Forum member Ian who put me in touch with Bauer and they were able to supply to correct points and condensers which arrived on Monday "I was well pleased" so we are going to try to fire her up using the new points to check to engine is sound before we move ahead with electronic ignition but the info you have given me is priceless for further down the line.
I also want to thank you for your offer of riding over to show me how to fit the ignition "I really appreciate that offer". My Benelli is with a mechanic and he is fitting in the work on her between all the day to day bike stuff he has to deal with, hopefully I'll get a call soon telling me if the Engine is o.k.
Thanks again for all your help Richard I'll let you know how I get on and when its done and running I'll owe you a drink.
