Benelli 750 ‘Sei Bel's Edition’: Red Six

The big, transverse-mounted six-cylinder engine dominates the frame of this Benelli bike. Resplendent in red and black, with gold accents, the bike has been developed into a café racer with period tuning equipment from Italian experts Bel's...

Italian tuning specialists Bel’s provided a modular system of tuning and improvement parts for bikes in the 60s and 70s. For example, the blocks of colour on the tank and seat were available from Bel's in red/white, black/gold and blue/light blue. This 1976 Benelli Sei has been given the full ‘Sei Bel's Edition’ treatment: Bel’s black/gold decals and wheels, and a variety of go-faster equipment that includes new Marzocchi dampers, Tarozzi replica racing footrests and Tommasselli bars. A tuned engine by Ravasio Moto at Casale Monferrato and special carbs, cans and exhausts endow the bike with potent performance.

The work was carried out in 2012-2013 and the bike has raced at the Imola 200-mile race this year. For further information, visit the Classic Driver Marketplace.
