This 1976 Benelli 750 Sei was reportedly sold new in Missouri and was acquired by the seller one year ago out of long term storage in California. The bike shows approximately 3,600 miles and is powered by a SOHC 747cc inline-six paired with a 5-speed transmission. The seller has successfully started the engine but notes refurbishing will be required due to corrosion inside the fuel tank and on many of the chrome surfaces. This 750 Sei is sold with removed parts and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

Designed by Ghia under the direction of Alejandro DeTomaso, the 750 Sei was the first production motorcycle offered with a six-cylinder engine. Of the estimated 3,200 built, this example is reported to be a Mk.1 series 2, of which only 87 were produced with an upgraded transmission. Finished in silver with red and black striping, the bike was stored for over 30 years, and corrosion is noted inside the fuel tank and on many of the chrome surfaces including the exhaust pipes, handlebars, fuel cap, and headlight ring. The fuel tank will require refurbishing as expired gas and corrosion can be found in the interior, and corrosion and a ding are noted on the exterior.

The front end features Marzocchi forks with Brembo dual disc brakes. Corrosion is visible on the fork tubes, and the seller notes the brake hydraulics will need to be rebuilt. Borrani shouldered alloy wheels wear older tires and the front tire is visibly flat.

The overhead-cam 747cc inline-six was factory rated at 76 horsepower and features three 24mm Dell’Orto carburetors. Both electric and a kick starters are fitted, and a 5-speed transmission transfers power to the rear wheel via chain drive. When purchased the seller cleaned the carburetors, filled the float bowls with fuel, and successfully started the engine. No service records are available, but removed parts including the petcocks, intake boots, and crankcase vent hoses will be included.
