:: MV Club of GB

Just wanted to publicly thank Dorian for rendering me sterling assistance on the weekend re spares & advice for the Flying Ant.

I spent an enjoyable few hours with both Lois and Dorian as we talked (and looked at) bikes. Came away with a much needed spare engine for my 2-bolt 125 TR only a few hundred numbers away from the existing one.

I would urge any of you Classics guys and girls out there to join the MV Club of GB to help keep these superb bikes on the road. It's a good little mag and the spares fund is second to none.

Now to write that promised piece for the mag.....

Oh, Oepie you came up in our conversation btw. Both you and I are nominated as the only known examples of individuals crazy enough to ride these machines on a daily basis. Tell me it ain't so, there must be more of us out there.....

Cheers one and all.

I can second Dorian's assistance and knowledge regarding classic MVs.

As for daily transport .. my bikes are purely pleasure although when summer comes and the new registration scheme for classic bikes is implemented (limited use per year and a log book) then the occassional trip to work may be in order.

Hi Jimbo ... congrats on your first magazine although I do wish you had edited my article on my semi famous ... a bit better. The semi famous bit was ownership by Nick Mason of Pink Floyd fame.

cheers

Russ

Hi Guys.

Well, i don't know what to say, except THANKS for all your kind words.

Trust me, i really does make a difference, especialy on mornings like this when i got back at 2 am from a trip to get spares from the club stores!

Most of all we have to keep these wonderful old MV's on the road where they belong..........not just as some over polished display item that never turns a wheel. Woops, sorry, going off on a tangent there.

Rob, i will drop you a email re Novegro this week.

All the best and thanks again.

Dorian.

I haven't posted in a while, but I completed the Giro d'California on my 1956 175 MV I purchased almost a year ago. The bike was a stunner on the outside, but a bit of a mess internally and Dorian deserves a bunch of credit, so THANKS! I had only put 8 actual miles and that was in 3 rides in maybe 4 months as each ride was proceeded with a tear apart...So I wasnt expecting to do so well as it ran perfectly for the entire race.

I am the one with the Ducati jacket:

Dorian- thanks for the parts, and even more important the measurements for this and that and general transfer of knowledge. I would not have been able to accomplish my goal of running in the Cali Giro if not for your help. Thanks to your wife as well as she is just great with getting the parts out !

ALSO: Dorian's showcased in the latest issue of Italian Motor magazine (if you haven't seen it...get it):

Cheers,
Jason

Yeah, there's always time for a cup of tea, good advice and a few wild bike stories at Dorian's place!

I'm glad you keep the Ant running, Jon. London would be a duller place without it.

Sorry Russ,

The current issue of the mag was done at breakneck speed, due to a number of reasons, and Jeni the management team and I were up against a really tight schedule. We also had to trial running the construction of the mag via a graphics artist who done us proud. Hopefully the next edition will allow us a little more preparation time. Lame excuse but the honest truth.

Really appreciate your input into the last issue, to be honest without your support, articles and photo's there would not have been a magazine at all this time.

So I am looking for even more from you and the Aussie boys and girls for the next edition.

Cheers (and promising to do better)

Jimbo
