Nah, your wife loves me, Andrew. Glad you got it. Now I'll keep an eye out for the parts you need.

So far I have given her a wash down. Changed the oil. The old oil was very dark. Glad the bike did not run, so that crap was not going through the engine before I got to purchase her.

Fuel line was off in the tank and it has to be replaced. It is turning to sludge and I am not sure if it is a line which should be inside the tank. Then I find all the crap stuck to the bottom of the tank. She going to be soo happy when I am done with her.

Looks like that bike was kept outside. In a lake. Shameless.

I think the first thing I would do is to at least find the graphics

Finding graphics could be a challenge. The tank on my mamba has the same silver MV Agusta logo. Which I was able to order 3 of, from my MV dealer. The problem, the decal appeared to be at least 10 years old. It was so bad my painter couldnít use it, but he was able to scan one and used that as a pattern to airbrush the logo on the tank.

Glad to see youíre rescuing this one. I really like the first gen red-frame bikes (sennas, Agos).

Somehow he and my wife get along really well... for some reason that is the reason my fith bike is coming...
cruiser and MV Arthur like this.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Personally if I was able to ship them over here I would go after This Senna...not fair at all ..I'm not sure where they get these model numbers...There's also a Corsacorta on there marked as a F6.

Also @R1andrew the state of the one you got... I hope the prvious owner was delt with accordingly. The state of this bike is unacceptable.

I think most of the Senna's went over to the states, I believe 13 came into the uk.
But there have been a couple for sale here recently all for about £20000.
Hope you manage to restore it back good luck and I will watch the post.
Will you return it to standard, mine has the red samco hoses, dark screen and indicators, rg3's, decat and race filters.
Just going to change the ecu as well.
Have all the original parts stored though.
Good luck 🙂

I would like to do some mods to her. But I am also about preserving the history of the bikes for future generations. So at this time I am looking at getting her back close to stock and most of all. Cleaned up.
