Found on eBay: 1969 Benelli Tornado 650
By Landon Hall
Around here we’re fans of all kinds of motorcycles, from the everyday to the rarest of the rare. But the ones that really get us drooling are unusual bikes that are in original condition. Though the Benelli Tornado isn’t the rarest of the rare, we can’t remember the last time we saw one in person, much less in this condition and for sale.
With only 2,100 kilometers (about 1,300 miles) on the bike, it appears to be in quite good shape for its age. It still wears the original paint, though it is a bit faded in a few spots.
