For sale a ’67 Ward Riverside made by Benelli. These bikes were built from 64 to 69.

It was made by Benelli Brothers in Italy and imported and sold by Montgomery Ward via their retail catalog which included outboard motors and even automobiles.

Curtis Terry; “When I saw the Benelli for the first time I was curious about its potential as a Vintage Road Racer in the AHMRA program.

During the restoration I noticed that it had large finned aluminum brake drums, a steering damper, a removable muffler tip that converts to a megaphone. It has a counter rotating engine, i.e., it runs backwards. This allows for a less complex gearbox. It's a big bore single, with a long stroke that develops maximum torque early in the RPM range. Also, it has a very impressive finned aluminum crank case sump. The engine/gearbox is gear driven and it has a very large clutch pack.

It has a battery ignition system that eliminates the magnetic drag of a rotor and field ignition system. I have installed a quick disconnect toggle switch on the side of the headlight, which is required for racing It has so much potential for someone to give it a try in the SOUND OF SINGLES CLASS. This is why I elected to revive it as a vintage racer. Benelli is world famous for building exotic racers as far back as the 50s and they have included a lot of the technology in their street bike.

The bike was completely disassembled and the engine removed. The frame and suspension was bead blasted', primed and painted. The fork tubes were disassembled, cleaned and serviced. The wheels were cleaned and buffed. The brakes were disassembled and cleaned. The head post bearings were replaced. A new ignition switch was installed along with a complete rewiring of the entire system. The engine side covers were removed and the internals were cleaned and inspected. The valve cover was removed and the tappets adjusted. The oil filter was removed and cleaned. The oil level site glass was removed and assembled with new o rings. The ignition coil was replaced. The carb was removed, cleaned, inspected and reassembled. New tires tubes and rim liners were installed. Installed new handlebars, levers and brackets. There are all new cables and hand grips. New speedometer and cable fitted. A new stop light switch was installed. The gas tank was vatted, sealed and repainted. The gas filler cap and headlight rim were rechromed. The fuel petcocks were cleaned and new seals installed. The engine starts and runs great. Included are pictures of the restoration progress, parts invoices for all purchases and Service and Parts Manuals that came with the bike I have a summary sheet that shows the total cost of the restoration. A Bill of sale is available.”  Asking $2,215.  Contact Curtis at
