Question MV 750s Corsa

This baby is for sale $75K. I am not allowed to buy so you guys had best look at it

It is presented as a 750s - but it seems to have a 600 motor - can it be bored that far?

Check it out in detail HERE

I might be wrong but it seems like a Magni MV. Not sure where the 750 S corse comes from unless he is referring to Arturo's input into the MV race team.

If it is a full Magni then the engine could be modded to 750 spec.

A Magni MV has been a dream bike for years. Definately a nice bike and at that price prehaps at the upper end of reasonable.

Lovely bike! I've just been checking down the back of the settee for funds but I'm a little way short so anyone who is prepared to chip in a few quid, I'd be most grateful

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


No MV's in the garage anymore

The 199-*** engine number shows it was fitted to a 600cc GT of 1968 vintage. The 600's stroke is the same as that on the 750, so enlarging its capacity probably meant just switching to 750 barrels/pistons etc.

(Another 600 bites the dust..! )

This bike was previously listed and sold by the same seller 3 - 4 years ago. In fact, the photos and video are from when it was offered at that time in the seller's prior business location. I bought a couple of bikes from the seller, Michael Kiernan, around that time. He is always sketchy on providing details on what he offers for sale, so I'd expect he doesn't have a lot of background on the bike. Very nice looking and sounding, but unless it was built by Magni or Kay (and documented as such), it's a lot of money for what is essentially a bitsa.

M-Go-Blue!

Very Interesting.

Frame 199-35 and engine 199-32 are the numbers of an original MV 600 'black pig' tourer that exists here in the UK.

The bike in Sydney has no right to be labeld an MV at all. Jap, i think Kawasaki, engine and no MV genuine parts that i can see.

I spend a large amount of my time trying to help people with genuine bikes and it realy pisses me off when stuff like this appears pretending to be an MV!!!!

OK rant over..........off to play with some genuine MV's in Holland for the weekend.
