Request some pics, lets see what a $50,000 moped looks like.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

Apparently it will be full of rust ;)

With all that rust i'm surprised that it is described as green and chrome...

I guess pot smoking and srooms is legal in Ottawa.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

Wait... Benelli did make one super-rare minibike.

Didn't they put a 175cc two-stroke into a minibike chassis, and send something like forty of them to North America?

I imagine that one of those could be worth... oh... perhaps only forty times less than that seller was asking.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

Well DUH! It's ovisously a type-o. It is clear to anybody that he men't to type $5,000, not $50,000!

Jeeeeze People!

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

it was 180cc and 200 of them were imported into the US

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

The 175cc was the Volcano.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

yeah, it had the enduro engine in it

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

no groms no blasters /

Maybe he meant a Benelli shotgun.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

The Volcano! Right!

I love that everyone just knows what I'm talking about when I cite huge displacement minibike death machine.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

174cc

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

I don't doubt there were 175's. I have seen 125 Bennelli

engines in minibikes. 125 was often the premium engine.

Often in the same frame where a briggs and stratten or

Tecumseh was more common.

I think parents where reluctant to buy the Bennelli engine for fear of the kid crashing.

BTY I have a Bennelli 125 engine in storage. It is in a full size bike though.

Re: 50,000 $ barn find... riiiiight

I just met some guy that has one of those in his garage along with everything else he has touched in his life time. He will be on the news shortly when they clear his house of the few metric tons of motors and what not. His Benelli looked in a little better shape and was a kick start
