    Hi

    I have just purchased a 500 race bike I beleive was used in France.

    I have not seen the bike as I work in Zambia and brought it on eBay as I liked the look of it.

    imshall be stripping the bike back to bare frame and the slowly rebuilding with borani wheels drum front brake new fuel tank seat unit and fairing.

    i shall be asking advice as new to owning a benelli and would like to make a nice usable replica 500gp.

    Looks like a good project. Forks, wheels and brakes are all available, but not cheap. But I guess you know that already. You’ll find Benellis are easy to work on. I had to totally strip my engine when I bought my bike, and it had been sitting in a garage for 30 years. I didn’t have any problem with seized bolts. I don’t think the same would be true for other marques.

    Please keep us posted on your progress.
