It appears to be a Sella with a Diva paint scheme and is missing the pillion seat strap.

I always find those Spanish models 'weird' with the Spanish writing on the decals and different coloured logos, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Of course, when General Franco was in command of Spain imports were tightly regulated to protect (and give) jobs to the Spanish population under the fascist credo of (pretty much) a closed economy. MV Agusta, Ducati, Moto Guzzi and Fiat to name a few Italian companies set up shop in Spain around Barcelona if my memory (from my readings many years ago) serves me correctly and hence the Spanish models in existence. Kind of interesting but that's about it.

Hey Russ, when did they become "Sella" - 1964 or so? At least this kind of thread keeps our brains ticking over - Thanks Adrian

Would one consider this being a real Mv being made in Spain ,and with different styling/ decals . I guess it depends on how passionate you are,for me a Mv has to be made in Italy.
