Department Store Bikes! This one a Montgomery Wards! I sense a new theme!

I love the Mojave. And a LOT of people love to use that tank on Cafe transformations!
From Pete Boyd

Saw the Allstate and wanted to send in my unrestored Montgomery Wards Mojave 260 with 1,739 miles on it.

  1. That has a cool tank. College girls would love this bike as a fashion accessory. I bet I know 3 who would get an endorsement just for the look of this.

    1. This is what I was told. Benelli was working on a Rickman replica/copy that was abandoned. They ended up putting 260cc or 360cc engines in these heavy duty frames for MW. They look funny because the frame seems completely over engineered for the engine size, but the small engines kept the price down for MW.
