Benelli 250 replica is a Carruthers tribute

Comprising approximately 40 lots, the Auctionata sale that takes place in Berlin on 4 May is made up predominantly of classic cars. Lot 1, however, is this charming 1968 Benelli 250 classic racing motorcycle...

Two-stroke replica

Piloted by Australian rider Kelvin ‘Kel’ Carruthers, Italian motorcycle manufacturer Benelli won the 250cc World Motorcycle Championship in 1969 with its advanced four-cylinder racer. The 1968 two-stroke replica shown here was built from many original parts sourced over a number of years, and was completed in 2013 as a stylish tribute to the original Championship-winning machine. According to its Auctionata description, the bike is offered in ‘fully functioning’ condition.
