Re: Benelli 750 sei

I figured how to setup the pressure sandblaster (the instructions were way off). John let me know current places to get media, it was cheap too. I got the frame blasted, but will do the swingarm later. Next prep and paint. I spent 40 minutes making a really nice seal driver for the clutch cover seal...

Re: Benelli 750 sei

Sounds like serious progress there. Bet it's nice to have the motor buttoned up. I should have offered you my siphon feed sand blaster and tent. It works much better than the pressure pot type. The same company that made my media blast machine made it for me. After looking at the frame (and still n...

Re: Benelli 750 sei

I got the frame mostly sandblasted today. The pressure sandblaster a buddy gave to me was difficult (well, for me anyway) to get setup for proper amount of sand. Too much or too little. But I got all the difficult parts and can wire brush/sand the rest and do paint prep. The ‘O’ rings for the head/c...

Re: Benelli 750 sei

I take that back.
The HEAD is black, with right and left ends bare of paint.
The cylinder has no paint.

The one I had new was like that also.

Re: Benelli 750 sei

I think the cylinder is black, with the outside ‘fins’ bare. Yes, I have a bunch of stuff that works well for porting. I have a couple of Foredome dental motor/drill setups (foot control) and a load a burrs. I was a Dental tech, learned if from my Dad who had a Lab here in town from ‘52, and I still...

Re: Benelli 750 sei

I got all the valves done. The Neway setup worked a treat. Next to match intake/exhaust manifolds up to head well. I’m not going to fool around with port work or any of that. I’m not looking for max performance. Just clean/match. I’m not sure how long that will take (with other stuff I’m doing)- but...

Re: Benelli 750 sei

Thanks on the larger valve tools- really, really appreciate the offers. I’ll just sandblast it myself. Really only rusty around the battery box, but of course paint chips etc. I’m not looking for concours bike at all, but I am trying for very good looking but more importantly- great running/riding b...

Re: Benelli 750 sei

Thanks John!
I just got a set of those (plus the intake is too large for that).

Frame ready to sandblast.
