Loved the soundtrack of the motor on the beautiful cafe racer, a thirsty motor but fast and the worst gear change I experienced on a bike...neutral needed to be set while riding.
Unfortunately after the Chinese connection I thought they would bring back the good old days of Benelli with some nice money invested but instead they turned into a scooter oriented platform and the usual Chinese copycat considering they launched recently two affordable 500 cc bikes look a like Multistada and Diavel>
Congrats, fabulous looking bikes and yours looks mint
My wife wants a Cafe Racer one of these. We looked at 2, both in terrible condition for the mileage, either the finishes aren't robust or the owners didn't look after them. There's a Cafe Racer with 2,700 miles on UK ebay at the moment...

Some strange way, this came with a parts bin.
1100 GPZ Efi, for parts, since i know nothing of its history, has 90k in kilometers on the odo.
650 euro/offer and lives in Finland. Can also strip for parts and ship.
My Supercharged ROEHR 1250SC is now at Barber Motosport Museum with its own display ect . VERY Happy to give such a great bike a good home and know it will be kept in great condition. They will be doing demonstration laps with the ROEHR 1250SC between races during the next Superbike round done...
What do others here think of these?
Apart from the performance I can't get excited by them. They both look like big lumps to me, the streetfighter in particular. That engine is not a looker so putting it on display is pointless, and the treatment around the rads and front end in general is...
