It looks like Phil Read's 1974 500 but with a diferent tail section. Those wheels have to be post 70s.

You're right, I didn't think of that, the wheels look quite modern compared. Maybe a replica or a bit of modification?

Still very pretty all the same

That's a Magni - donor MV 750 motor (or possibily even 600) - chain conversion not sure about the frame. After MV closed down they fiddled with ther own versions. Arturo Magni was the legendary race director for MV Agusta thru much of their glory days.

The sound thru the open Magni pipes is to die for!

Here's how the Magni pipes can sound. I've posted this link before, but for the more recent arrivals on the site it will give you a laugh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecGdhT0e5WU

I'd hazard a guess that it's a a Magni MV. If it is a full Magni then there were quite a few options available to customise the bike to the owner's specification including frame, forks, brakes, pipes, tank, seat, fairing, engine. Magni produced wheels similar to those (they may even be Magni rims) which were used on the 750 America as either an option or as standard (for the later manufactured bikes including the 850).

For me, the full Magni MV is the pic of road going MVs.

I visited the 'shed' of the owner of the America earlier this week. He has put some baffles in the pipes since the video was taken. Amongst his small collection of sports bikes are some classics (MV America, '76 & '79 900 SS Ducatis, '71 750 Sport Ducati, MHR mille Ducati, Laguna Seca F1 Ducati, 750 SFC Laverda) along with some modern Ducatis (851 through to 1098 R & Desmocedici), a Sport Classic Guzzi a la MVixen, some Bimotas and an Ago MV.

He's a nice guy who keeps all his bikes in pristine condition cleaning them after every ride (yep, he does ride his bikes)

He also has a few exotic Italian cars (Ferrari, Maserati and Lamboghini). Might try and take some pics of the collection in the near future.

HI.

Lovely bike that with a wonderful period racer look.

Standard road engine and a modified factory frame, not a Magni frame.

You can see the bent tubes where the top rail joins the rear subframe, Magni frames are all straight here. Also if you look at the mod to allow for the chain you will see a bit of a cut and shut job ie; two right angle beends etc. No Magni frame would ever be like this.

The Magni chain drive conversion came with a frame mod that you had to do to your excisting factory frame. This ment attacking your lovely, new and expensive bike with a hacksaw, welding in a new piece and repainting. I'm glad mine was done before i got it!!!!

The complete frames from Magni where of a differenr design and of course didn't need this as they where designed to be chain drive from the start.

The thin wall open Magni pipes have a sound all of there own.....spine chilling and VERY NOISY

Dorian.
