i'm currently in the same process with my 312R to make a Strada replica but with the carbon body work the white and black stock paint that the bike came with. Kinda a sleeper. I'm saving now for the swing arm.

have you had a look at how much the TSS system actually runs up to when you include all the parts on vesuvio's web site? it's not cheap

Either buy the real thing or nothing at all. Replicas are stupid IMO.

If you create something new like a veltro brutale. Thats a different story.

look at his stable....don't think cost is that much of a prob.

generally i don't like replicas. however, when it comes to very rare cars/bikes replicas are more accepted. it comes down to you and how you feel owning an imitation of the real thing. personally, i think i would pefer a more 'customization' like alkas white CC paint scheme. that's just different enough to not be a replica, but as good as the original item IMO.

MV's are rare enough to the general public that you always get the "what's that?" what do you say when you roll up with a veltro rep? well, it's a rare bike that's been made to look like an even rarer bike that you've never heard of that there were only 99 made.

again..."not that there's anything wrong with that."

I think you will find that if you actually add up the cost of all the upgraded components, it would be cheaper to buy an original. The exhaust alone is $8K for the CC or Veltro.

It's all down to what youy want to acheive, what sort of bike do you want to produce at the end of it?

A bike that is a replica of something else or a bike that is trick as hell and unique to you. A bike that encompasses all the very best components for an MV Agusta and pays tribute to the MV's strenghts.............handling and power and solves it weak points.............weight.

The TSS system will need to be controlled by either a CC ECU or our Microtec ECU, either ways round it'll need controlling plus it's only vacuum operated, i still reckon a servo controlled one might be slightly better and offer more in the way of flexibility for finding power. The chassis are awesome and with a few mods in the right direction can be made even better.

Your main areas for improvement are on magnesium parts, carbon bodywork, lighter brakes, better fuel management, possibly tuned engine...........essentially what a CC is but i personally beleive that i could build a better bike than the CC, not a more prestigious bike but in terms of how it functions i'm sure that i could produce a much nicer bike to ride than the CC, it's not that hard to do but does require $$$.

I would also avoid just havign a copy for the sake of having a copy, i would go to town on the bodywork as well, try some new ideas out that keep it esentially looking like an MV but not exactly like an MV.

just my tuppence worth.
