my new MV project arrived, hurray.....

Hello,

yesterday my new project for a total restauration arrived at my home. A 125 Sport, 1978, with double break disc and fairing.

With luck I got this "barn found" .

During this winter I restored my spare motor which will be installed in this bike.

Some pictured you'll find in my photo album:

So, now I'll spit on my hands and get down on work.....

@ Dorian & Russ, please don't be angry if I contact you with the one or the other questions during the restauration .

cheers

Helmut

hi Helmut

congrats on the bike and I'm happy to help wherever I can. I might even drop by and have a look at how it is progressing (contemplating a European sojourn for September/October this year),

cheers

THX Russ,

that would be nice if we could meet for MV trade talks and a couple of beers this year.

Let me know!

cheers

Helmut

Well done Helmut!!! You are saving a MV for future generations to enjoy!!!

It does look like you have much work to do but on the positive side, it seems that it is all there and that's the best start possible to a project.

I was going to say if you need any help just yell, but with Dorian & Russ on the team, I am happy to warm the subs bench - you can't get better guys than those two!

Good luck, keep us informed of progress.

About a month ago there was one for sale on e-bay in Oz for $6,000 AUD. I was tempted to buy it but for the fact I already have one.
