Between ’59 and ’69, Montgomery Ward sold Benelli motorcycles under the ‘Wards Riverside’ name. If you bought one, you’d get the bike delivered in a crate, and then have to assemble it yourself. Here’s an pretty example of the 250cc model.
The seller claims this bike (VIN: 1401723994) is a barn find which runs but needs a little bit of work, including a clutch adjustment. It has just over 2,000 miles on the odometer and is claimed to be all original, complete with the break-in instructions still on the tank. It recently received new points, fuel lines, battery, and more.
