MV Agusta Checca 99

Hi Folks,

I am thinking of buying a 50-60s MV. I am not particulary keen on one single model, but i am jsut checking around what comes to the market and what pleases me in the Looks-department.

I am in Germany and at the moment i got an offer for this, what i believe is a 99 Checca. The buyer unfortunately does not know a lot about the bike. it seems it has been restaurated in Italy and comes with papers. it is from 1964 and has 99 cc. so this has to be a Checca, right?

How does the Checca compare to other MVs of that era?

He offers it to me for 3000 EUROS.

here are some pictures, what do you think? something worth buying?

It does look like a Checca Sport and as such it is in great shape.
Well 3000 Euro is quite some money on first view.
But the costs of restoring a 1000 Euro Bike to such conditions would be way more costly.
Depends on for what You are planning on doing with it.
They are not particularly fast and powerful.
Well I hope You can get it and have fun with it.

i would ride it, not just let it rot somewhere in a basement. thats what is was built for. it would be for slower nice rides. i just wonder if the price is ok, and how the bikes compare with other MV s of that era like a disco volanteor some of the 125ers. There are so many of them that look quite similar

Hi, I have three Checca 99's. 2 x Sport and a GTE. This machine is an obvious re-paint and I question the white as the original colour was more a cream than white. Price is quite good as restoring a Checca will cost far more than your asking price. They are very simple engines with flat head and parallel valves. They have NO electrical power, yes, less than an early Ducati! Other than the white this Checca Sport looks very original. Parts though can be hard to find. You should be able to find a repro pump for the frame. I think it is good value and great for a run to the shops for fish and chips

Well it will be though to get a 175CS Disco Volante for such little money, if You find a decent one at all.
Now the 99 has 6,5hp and a max speed of 90kph.
This is likely telling You something about the performance and the range of activities it can handle on public roads.
But a 125 of this area had only 7,5hp and a max speed of 100kph and is with it not much different.
The later sixties and seventies 125 had up to 14hp and reached up to 120kph.
Even the 175 CSTA / CSTL / CSGT had only 11hp and run 115kph.
And in my eyes are 250's (Raid or Bicilindrica) or the 350 Twins something were You can safely operate on back roads.
I mean not only swim with the traffic but pass slower vehicles to.
However I believe for certain environments like suburban areas would be the 99 enough.
For an example to get on sunday mornings to the bakery to get some nice rolls for breakfast.
Even if You roam around the back roads before the visit at the bakery.

Hi there, thx for the great feedback. So this seems like a good deal. As I know nothing about these bikes.

How do the start? Where is the kick starter? I heard the gear shift is on the right foot is that correct? And then the back break is in the left foot? Also down up shifting is switched. Right? Other things I have to watch? I am only used to modern bikes as the f4? Fuel? Maintainance?
