Full Description

One of two Leoncini in our sale today, this 1957 Leoncino (‘Lion Cub’ in Italian) is the highly desirable Sport variant of Benelli’s best-selling two-stroke lightweight.

It is complete, with the exception of the cast-aluminium lion which should sit on the front mudguard (so if you wanted an excuse to go to an Italian autojumble, there it is).

The popularity of these bikes in Italy means the spares situation is good, so getting it back on the road should present few problems. The Leoncino has been described as ‘a masterclass in mid-twentieth century Italian motorcycle design’. Well, it’s certainly one up on a Tiger Cub.

It comes with a NOVA document and a Benelli Motobi Club GB dating certificate.
