Hi ddmv,


MV used some different forks. For the 175 CS series they used two different telescopic forks and two different Earles one. I think it depends on the year of production. I think in 1957 they startet to use a different front fork with an alluminium casted top yoke, which also did the job as a braket for the headlamp. The older one from 1952 to 1956 has an iron casted top yoke and separate brakets for the headlamp made of sheet metal.



What bike do you have? Show us some pictures and have a look in the book ofMario Colombo. You can also look at the officuial web site of the MV factory. I think, it's possible to compare the different types of front forks there.


Good luck


Alexander

Hi! The MV factory used this type of front fork for some 175 models, pushrod and ohc after 1956. For the Raid they used a different one, quite similar looking but different. At least the headlamp brackets are not made of aluminium but of sheet.

Regards
