Hi JSM,

That is one beautiful MV Agusta 750s America you have there, 002 as well, certainly an ever appreciating collectors bike.

Back in 1974 the MV Agusta 750s, model before yours was my dream machine but at 2,500 UK pounds then, was way out of my reach, looks like it would have been a good investment though if I could have found the cash, and 30 years of pure joy in owning it thrown in for good measure.

Couple of questions?

Do you know what ever happened to 001?

Do you know how many of 750s America circa 1975 were produced?

Cheers,
John

I don't know how many were produced from the factory but I recall reading somewhere that only about 50 were ever sold in the UK.

Hi John,

Found the following result on the Bonhams website for Phil Read's f4 750

http://www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/publi...&iSaleNo=15320

Lot 562 The Property of Phil Read, MBE,2000 MV 750cc F4 9,600

Others of interest from this auction:

Lot 561 1976 MV Agusta Monza 15,000

Lot 550 c.1978 MV Agusta 862cc Magni Racing Motorcycle 19,000

Lot 546 1958 MV Agusta 175cc 2,700

Lot 551 46 kilometres from new,c.1977 MV Agusta 750S America 30,000

No record of the ex works 500 though, so guess she didn't meet the reserve.
