Hi

New member here in Auckland new Zealand

Recently got my hands on an almost mint 1977 MV Agusta 350 Ipotesi to add to the fleet. This has had a Magni 400cc kit installed.

Hi, Congratulations & Welcome

What are your impressions after riding it?

Also, hope it's only an optical illusion but it looks like your front brake lever is missing

It does seem very nice indeed

Havn't started it yet - only had a couple of days to check things out so far. Had to get a new battery before I could check the electrics, and will be stripping and clenning the carbs this comming weekend. Then I will put some gas in it (its completly dry) and see what happens.

The electrics all work, even if Italian electrics of the 70's have their little idiosyncrasies

The oil is obviously new, as are the tyres. The battery was replaced because the old one had been drained (probably for shipping) and it was easier to get a replacement than source some acid.

I'm just going over things and checking before I light the fires, just to be safe.

The front brake lever is there - its just the angle hides it behind the bar.

Don't know where you would get the 400 kit from - it was already fitted when I got the bike.

You can try
http://www.magni.it/

The kits may still be available.

That's fair enough, we will be awaiting your report as soon as everything is done.

The Magni big bore kit makes it sound very different to normal 350 - it is much 'throatier' and deeper to boot - I think if you married it to a set
Mangi pipes, it would awesome - hopefully in a couple of months I'll be able to tell you exactly how it sounds

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!


No MV's in the garage anymore

Quick note - when I first saw this bike I assumed it had been refurbished, The paint and everything is so good, but having got it home I am now convinced it is in fact all original.

Does anyone know - did the frame number and the engine number originally - 8if so then the motot ghas been changed.
