1972 MV AGUSTA 750S

Classic Bike (UK) - - EVENT -

One of just 402 pro­duced, this su­perb ex­am­ple of MV Agusta’s first sports road­ster mod­els is a highly de­sir­able ma­chine. De­vel­oped from the fac­tory rac­ers, the 750S pro­duced a claimed 65bhp and, while it re­tained the shaft drive of MV’S first four-cylin­der road bike, the 600cc 4C, was a gen­uine sports bike.

The 750S was man­u­fac­tured be­tween 1968-75; this ex­am­ple was orig­i­nally sup­plied to Ger­many and has been in the hands of its cur­rent owner since 1989. It was last run in July this year (when it was also ser­viced) and has un­der­gone an engine re­build by the Ger­man MV Agusta im­porter Roland Sch­nei­der a mere 3283km ago. Up­graded with a mag­ne­sium Ce­ri­ani front brake, leather-up­hol­stered seat and lower than stan­dard 11/31 fi­nal drive gears, the bike is be­ing of­fered with a cache of spares in­clud­ing a set of 26mm Dell’orto car­bu­ret­tors, the orig­i­nal wheels and brake plates, stan­dard fi­nal-drive gears, a new Bosch dis­trib­u­tor and speedome­ter and var­i­ous other parts. A quan­tity of lit­er­a­ture – in­clud­ing sales brochures, a parts list and a work­shop man­ual – is also in­cluded in the sale. Es­ti­mate is £70,000-100,000.
