Reader Ride. Custom Benelli 250

Pete Boyd keeps sending them in. Thanks Pete!

Thanks for posting my CL 350 cafe bike. Here is my 1968 Wards/Benelli 250. The seat is mounted to a car leaf spring. The round thing above the bars is an 8 ball shifter knob mounted to adjust the steering damper. The tail light is stock but I cut off the back support and mounted it upside down. Benelli won the 250cc world championship in 1968…my how things have changed!

  1. I love your 1968 Custom. Just last monthI bought a 1968 wards Riverside 250 and plan on doing the same cafe style rebuild, I would love more info on how to fabricate the seat mount and info on a specific seat to use. Thanks
