Known in other markets as the 125 Cross, this rare model was named the Panther in the US. Parts can be difficult to find, which is why I’m shocked to see that someone has taken it upon themselves to give this example a significant restoration.

The 125cc two-stroke motor is paired with a 5-speed transmission, Marzocchi suspension, and double drum brakes. Dry weight was 210 pounds. This example is said to have 0 miles on it after a restoration that included an engine rebuild and several new parts – wheels, tires, wiring harness, and exhaust.

Find this Benelli Panther for sale here on Craigslist for $2,750 in Hamilton, New Jersey.
