Motobi was founded in 1949 by one of the Benelli brothers, Guiseppe, and production of motorcycles began the following year. Initially producing two-strokes, they turned to four strokes in 1955 with the distinctive horizontal engine, for which they became best known. Motobi were active in road racing, and, to a lesser extent, in Motocross.
This Motobi Cross dates from approximately 1961 and is fitted with the characteristic air-cooled four-stroke engine, twin-shock rear suspension, drum brakes front and rear. The fuel tank is steel, and there is some corrosion present on the handlebars and wheel rims. An older restoration, it will require re-commissioning prior to further use. Whilst the engine turns over, its mechanical condition is unknown. There are no documents present, and it is sold strictly as viewed.
As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
