TAXd until July 2012
Here we have for sale my 50cc Benelli 491 ST 2002 (02 reg). I used to love riding this bike, and I used it on a daily basis to commute to work until out of nowhere the bike came to a stop, and the kickstart lever wouldnt move. I got on the bike as usual, kick-started it (as the electric starter was not working at the time) rode off and covered less than 100 meters when the bike just cut out and rolled to a stop. No pre-warning, no funny noises, just very uneventfully the engine came to a stop. I got off the bike to kick-start it again, but the kick-start would not budge. I am not mechanically mined enough to know if this is a quick fix or not, hence the reason why I am selling it as is, for spares or repair.
If you know what your doing with these sorts of mopeds, you will have a great bike on your hands. As I said I was riding it on a daily basis right up until it stopped working. Now I have changed jobs and moved house i now no longer require the bike.
The bike is not in the best of conditions as a few years ago I came off it in the rain causing cosmetic damage only (as you can see from the pics). At the last M.O.T I spent over £170.00 getting the fork seals replaced and new brake pads. Other than that it went through the test fine. I also have the receipts to prove these repairs and how much they cost me if you wish to see them.
Once running this bike has everything you need to start riding. I have the logbook, mot certificate and the bike is taxed until the end of July.
I have tried to give as much information as possible with regards to what happened when the bike stopped working, and the current condition it is in, however if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact. Whether you would like more photos, or info I am more than happy to help.
The bike will have to be collected from where I live in West London, 1 mile from the M3 Junction 1 (Sunbury Cross). I may be able to arrange for the bike to be delivered as I have access to a van, however an additional agreed cost will have to be arranged depending on location.
Viewing is welcome and recommended.
