Got my MV...

After a good bit of cleaning she's starting to really shine again. Replaced the missing decals - from what I gather it was left somewhere getting rained on through the cover for a good while. The quick releases rusted and killed the paint and decals. Matey had all the damaged articles restored except the stickers.

We've had all the bodywork off and it's really clean inside, my Dad took it out for a run and said it's very smooth, gearbox/temperature/everything fine. Few more things to check (chain tension - also I see a lot about the rear hub being talked about)

Anyway a few shots here:

I didn't replace them - but as far as I can tell they're as per original replacement ones.

Looks very nice !

The CG125 will be quite a different experience, you'll need to learn all over with the MV.

It took me 18 months to get to know and feel comfortable and confident with mine.

The motor is docile enough and the controls are fine, it was the riding position and not knowing how far I was leaning over with my neck twisting backwards.

It feels quite natural now.

Best of luck to you .........and Dad !
