The Restoration of a 1974 Benelli 2C Motorcycle
Finding alternative parts for the Benelli 2C is a constant challenge for the restorer. The following is a list I have compiled during the restoration.
SUPPLIER or ALTERNATIVE
Fram CA73PL (I am told this is now just called a CA73). Also, in Australia, Ryco A5
Yamaha DT175, 17 tooth
Same as Moto Guzzi V50. Possibly similar to many Yamaha.
Originals are painted silver. Stailess available from
Central Wheel Components
Same as certain Moto Morinis. These are still available new.
Two per leg. Any bearing shop. Take a sample.
So far, all the bearings have been off-the-shelf at the bearing shop. Easy. Cheap.
Fork seal dust covers
The Special Tool
For the swing-arm and flywheel nuts. Make one yourself. We did.
Connecting Rod Big End Bearings
Prox International (Netherlands) Big End Cage # 22.182415. 15 needle, silver.
18 x 24 x 15mm. Packet says "HONDA" but possibly also KTM.
Do you know any parts which fit the Benelli 2C? I am particularly interested in finding out if there are any other pistons which can be used on this bike. Contact me with any of your tips or tricks.
