MOTOBI hi all, I just joined after seeing the stand at Donington. I have a Motobi 250. It a recent buy and sort of runs but none of the electrics work (lights horn etc), so it's a bit of a project I guess. The Motobi 250 is a 70's 2 stroke twin - about 30 bhp. It came about as there was a falling out within the Benelli family and one of the brothers left to form Motobi. He build a few designs of his own but later produced a leicensed copy of the Benelli 250 - there was a Moto Guzzi version too as Benelli and Moto Guzzi were both under De Tomossa ownership. Anyway it's a pretty cool bike and I'm looking forward to getting it to a show soon.Hopefully meet some of you there.

Hi Mike. I spoke to you at Donington, you told me about your bike. Thanks for joining up and posting straight away. Thumbs Up

There's not a lot of Italian bikes on this forum, but that's not because we don't like 'em ! We love all the obscure stuff, so we're looking forward to seeing yours on here. And we'd love to display it at a future show too, it should get a lot of attention.

Cheers, Tim.
