This is an original series production racing motorcycle with side car. The bike was used in races for the German Championship of Historic Motorcycles for several years. In 2006 motorbike and sidecar participated in a race for the last time, the driver was Günter Koslowski. Ever since both were well kept in a collection. The Benelli 500 OHC Sport with side car is in complete condition, originality is documented in the historic car pass, according to which the side car was rebuilt on a Velorex chassis frame after it had an accident.

The Italian family enterprise Officina Meccanica Benelli was founded in 1911, around ten years later the first bikes were manufactured in Pesaro. Initially the company produced simple two-stroke motorcycles with 75 and 98 ccm. In 1927 a more modern 175 OHC one cylinder four-stroke motorbike, which was unbeaten in races from day one, followed. Benelli gained ten victories at the beginning and set the course for its triumphant racing history. Racing success led to a great demand for the sporty road bikes. The motorcycles also made racing history in the 1950s. Benelli won the world championship in the 250 ccm class with Dario Ambrosini in 1950 and with Kel Carruthers in 1969. In 1971 an Argentinian businessman took over Benelli. As a consequence of a dwindling demand, production of motorcycles was stopped in the 1980s and was resumed under the direction of Andrea Merloni in 1992.
