Benelli was established in Pesaro, Italy in 1911 making it one the oldest of Italian motorcycle manufacturers still in operation. The company was purchased by the Italian-Argentine industrialist Alejandro de Tomaso, who was undoubtedly one of the most controversial and powerful figures in Italy in the '60s, '70s and '80s having founded De Tomaso Automobili in Modena and making his own series of road and racing cars, later acquiring a number of Italian companies such as Maserati, Innocenti, Ghia and Vignale and then, in 1971, Benelli and its competitor Moto Guzzi.
The Sport Special was a result of the merger of Benelli with Motobi in the early 1960s and features a 125cc four stroke engine with an horizontal cylinder and a five speed gearbox. A very sporty looking bike in Benellis trademark metallic green racing colours, it is fitted with typically Italian good quality brake and suspension components. Restored in Italy by Marco Guida and recently imported, having spent most of its life in Bari, it is offered in excellent condition and includes its original Italian documents and is UK registered on a current V5C
