Post Listing Update: This BIN was lowered to $2,000, but this Benelli scooter did not sell.

In the 60s, Montgomery Ward’s sold a Benelli-built moped in two variants – the 150-D and 250-D. The latter got all kinds of fancy upgrades, including a speedometer!

On a serious note, the 250 came with other extras like a tool pouch, passenger foot pegs, a long seat that flips up, and an optional steel leg shield. The “250” was simply a model number, as the motor is actually a 50cc 2-stroke built by Moto Morini. Depending on the rider’s weight, this moped could hit a top speed of approximately 35 miles per hour.

This example (VIN: FFA-61-14001 A) is said to be all original (including the tires!) except for the air filter. Everything is said to work. Find this Benelli for sale in Rochester, Michigan with a BIN of $2,100
