Question which 175ccm is that? what decals ?

Hello folks!
The last couple of years I īve restored this Mv Agusta!
Itīs a 175ccm version from 1957.
So far I dont know which exact model this is. Iīve never seen a handlebar like this. itīs a tomaselli.

may you can help me with that?
which model is this exactly?

the frame number is 419751.
it has a dellorte mb20b and oil damper and fork.

I also have some pictures from the old decals, may you also know which one they are.

thanks in advance and best wishes from germany, munich,
tom

I don't know the model, but it is beautiful. You have done a very good job.

The "Classic" fellows will know and will be along soon !!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Tom,
The small fin overhead cam cylinderhead with the extended primary cover for the points would be from a CSGT engine- the top triple clamp/headlight ear casting was used on the CSGT and the CS57- the front fender looks to be CS57, not CSGT- the fuel tank isn't CS57 or CSGT, probably from a later model, so my guess would be that it was assembled from parts that were available. I've only heard of the 415XXX series engine number being used for the CSGT, but my CSGT number has a character that your engine doesn't have.
There's so little information available on these old MVs that anything is possible, but it's likely that it didn't leave the factory with that assortment of parts.
It's very nice- crazy handlebars.
Rick

You should contact the curators at the Barber Museum in Birmingham Alabama USA.
They have one of the largest collections of motorcycles in the world, including just about every MV model ever made (such as Sir John Surtees' world championship winning bike).
They also have one of the largest research reference libraries of vintage motorcycle information in the world.
Great people, and very helpful.

Hi guys,
I think it's a 175 A B wich has been built 1958-1959. Rick is right that the several components looks like to be collected from several types CS CST CSTL. The 175 A B had the same mudguard, exhaustpipe, cilinderhead and tank as your bike. I'm just a bit surprised about the year of production. Your bike in 1957. The A B series from 1958. Is probably one of the very first A B's, produced at the end of 1957.
The VIN you mentioned is in line with other 175 bikes from 1957.
By the way: what a beauty!

This picture shows the different types of the 175 A B. The one at the top, right side of the page looks to me similar to your bike. So I think it is a quitte original bike, except from the handlebar.

thank you very much jan!

other peaple said itīs a cstel.

I just wonder about the fact, that my bike looks like the ab right on the bottom (the gas tank shape and colour is the same) but my bike is from july 57.

It can't be an 175 AB because it has an ohc engine. I think this wonderful bike is an CSTEL. I think it is rather rare and a very good looking bike. Hope it does drive well.
