Post-Sale Update: After 13 bids on eBay, this Fireball sold for $1,700.

Despite the name, this bike (a rebadged Benelli Fireball sold out of Montgomery Wards stores) has a 49cc engine. Maybe the name translates to “4” – number of gears in the transmission and “50” – displacement?

I’ve always thought these bikes had a 50cc engine but the seller seems to believe his has a 65cc unit. Nevertheless, this bike has just 22 miles on a rebuilt engine, and it’s otherwise complete with original parts. It just ‘did very well’ in a recent Moto Giro event, and the seller will even throw in lots of extra parts (including 2 extra motors) for a additional price. Find this 450SS for sale in Avon, Indiana with bidding up to $1,025
