Probably quieter than when it was new! I would guess it's age as late 50s to mid 60s. It look very tidy.

Hi Stefan and welcome :wave: I would imagine that a drives and bearings supplier may be able to help you out with a drive belt, hope that helps. :thumbup:

Hi Stefan,
Not an educated guess in any way but after sifting through some pics I would suggest maybe a Benford 750, 1965ish.
Wonderful scenery you have there!

Hi
Thanks for you all reply.
Yes, this is a Benford 750 of 60th year.
But I do not know where or who can I ask for belt and pulley.
I've sung in the ebay belt, was 4 years ago for sale, but no one bought.
I sent a message to the seller, maybe he still has this part.
Everywhere search forums and always ask whether from where I can get rid of, but no one knows.
Have a nice day
Thank you hair bear it is a beautiful district. Much mountain and beautiful country
Regards
Stefan

Is it a flat type of belt? Is the belt effectively the clutch? Would it be possible to re-pulley and belt with a more modern available equivalent?

Hi
It was with flat belt drive, but in the engine is a normal belt pulleys.
The transmission is still the original flat belt pulleys. So used.
I want to re-install the original flat belt. So is original and so works right.
I need for engine a pulley and the right belt. But I do not know what length (3 "belt). I do not know diameter for richige pulley for engine.
That's why I need someone who knows.
