I think it's pretty cool. Seems like a lot for a clone. I don't know the values of the older bikes.

I know nothing as to worth, but the first time I saw an MV Agusta four of that vintage, I knew what true love was. They sure made a great looking engine for that bike.

It was quite common for MV owners to convert the rather ugly 600/4 and the 750 GT into the desireable 'sport'. When buying a Sport it is a must that the bike is checked to see if it is a conversion or genuine article.

It is hard to say a value but at a guess less than the Sport. To me the chain drive conversion doesn't detract from the value. Probably a good way to get into classic 4C MVs if you can't afford the Sport or America.

Beware.....those are not MV engine and frame numbers.

I have the 600 factory records and even if you take out some of the 'extra' numbers (MV 600's were 199 and then up to 3 digits only) he has added there is no way anything matches .

Engine looks like one of the new repro ones coming out of Italy at the moment.

Is that a bad thing Dorian? Do you have any info on the repro engines. The photos on ebay look good but I agree with Carl, it does seem a lot to pay for something which clearly isn't the genuine article.

Number of issues here.

One is that i don't think it is what it is being advertised as. Two is that some of it is poss not even MV. If it was a 600 turned into a 750 sport, then that's one less 600 around which is a VERY bad thing in my books. It's not like they made many of them!

You can get almost anything made in Italy and the old eastern block countries at the moment, some good, some not so good.

I have no problems with replica's but they need to be advertised as such. People are making up histories for bikes to get an increased value and once the bike has gone through a few owners it all of a sudden becomes gospel.

There are some very well known bikes, some in famous museums, that are not what they are represented as. This is bad for any prospective purchaser and members of the public who go to see them.

My personal opinion to this topic:

A real oldtimer enthusiast one would be deceived with such a bike itself.

Either right and far- reaching original or leave it (just the heart of the bike, the motor).

And to purchase to this high price a copy, would be nothing for me.

So I'm saving my money, and maybe someday........

The seller clearly believes it to have a 600 engine or should I say a motor derived from a 600, but as Dorian says, if the engine numbers don't tie up, perhaps he genuinely doesn't know if it's a pukka MV motor or not. I'm with Helmut on this one, if I was going to buy a 750S, I'd save up my pennies and make sure (no disrespect to the guy selling this bike) I got a legit one.
