MV AGUSTA 350CC - Shannons Sydney Action in March

I received my catalog for the Shannons Sydney March Action last night and before I could say "Look another MV at the Shannons Auction" my wife said NO!!!!!! I guess it's a bit too soon to buy another.

Here's the link
http://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/lot/Y017F4ASB75O932P/#.VOUfy_mUdXM


Looks nice, and the price range seems to be reasonable, but then again it's a price range. NO RESERVE, but hasn't been started in 10 years.... Why...

Cheers Justin

Yes, same bike as Julian had, except Julian's was an original and an outstanding example.

This one raises a few flags namely it says it was bought in restored condition some 10 years added to a large collection & never started or run. Interestingly the speedo shows 1985miles, so why would it need restoration with such little usage?

Might be all ok but I'd have a very close look at it if I was going to seriously bid. Don't know if it is the photo but the tank colour also looks 'off' from the brown that it should be.........

Could be a good buy at the bottom end of the price range but a bit of gamble? It would be a whole bunch better if was started up, seems strange no one would/could do that.

Yes exactly' ,restored but so low kms but hasn't started. If you got it for under $5,000 would be ok. Always a risk with these old classics as I know to well.
You thinking about having a look at it Rob,it's in Sydney?

No, not going to look as I am not interested at present and don't really like being a tyre kicker - usually if I show up it means I am buying it.

I have a round case representation for my collection - the one Russ rode pictured the "Fun Day" thread, I didn't tell him it was the only known example in existence produced in that configuration as I didn't think he needed any extra pressure .

I think this bike will go for closer to it's higher range price ($9k) then you have to add the Shannons' fees on top - they tend to go a bit silly at those auctions, I've been to a couple and never had any success namely because I wasn't prepared to pay over the odds. In my pervious life as a Money Market dealer and Technical Analyst you tend to learn bidding discipline second to none or same day unemployment beckons

Patience is the key to searching (as you well know Adrian) and also to find decent acquisitions.

Having said that - I am not saying this one is not decent, what I am saying is that it does need very careful investigation though.

You have to be disciplined like you said, know your limit and allow for all the fees etc. I personally don't like car/ bike auctions as you can't test ride them and lucky if you can start them. Always perfer buying private or from a dealer, much more relaxed and can negotiate the price
But you never know sometimes you can get a bargain .

It's always the lure of the 'bargain' that leads the unsuspecting into the abyss.
