Hi Guys
been clearing out my uncles shed and selling his bikes on the dreaded fleabay.
This was the rarest of the 3 and had been stood since 1994 , but had only covered 5600 km from new.
Its a benelli 254 quattro . has anyone owned one or seen one before ?

My dad had a 750 Sei in the early eighties , it was red with black panel and its the only one i've ever seen with cast (Mag) wheels. At the same time my uncle had a bluey green one but spoke wheels.

Did he get it from Freddie Friths? I remember when they used to sell all kinds of oddball bikes from Laverdas, BMW R90's, Ducatis & CBX1000's all jostling for position in the shop window. Very back street, very uncommercial & very cool........
