Thanks for sharing that Oepie.
I did notice an incredible abundance of Cheese Cutter caps in those pictures. Standard equipment in the classics pits.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Thank You Oepie for the great photos of this marvelous machines. It must have been a great day there. What surprises me is the fact that these guys call their MV 500's 1964 models. The 500 Tre had its racing debut in March 1966 as a 371 or so, a overbored 350. The 350 Tre had its race debut in 1965. Plus they look dazzling nice for the first batch of this, by Agostini raced, bikes.

Unfortunately no, John.

To be honest, I didn't even know what it was, I had to look up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASgpBWIBe7A

and oh boy that must be a great event!
It's only the 2nd edition, isn't it?

Thanks for bringing it up. Looks like this event deserves a bit of publicity.

Yes, great pics thanks for posting (love the re Matchy)
I think the Oversby is a "new" bike (Kays???)

There both new (replica) bikes. One from the Kay's the other from Varese.

Not that this matters in any way as it's fantastic to see them out there and used in anger.

If anyone fancies one of the Varese bikes i can point you in the right direction, although you will need £110,000 minimum..............worth every penny in my opinion!

nice pics.

Dorian, those bikes are so tempting but infortunately I told MVista or more imortantly, MVixen, that my birthday was approaching and there was a 750 Sport MV for sale in Melbourne. Not as good as MVista's GTLS but then I didn't mind. The reply was to do with Tiffany's amongst other things so I did some homework and thought the deal could proceed as long as I sold a few things only to be informed the current US trip was also on the agenda. A bit more homework and if I sold everything (bikes, furniture, van, clothes, camera etc) I could do the deal and still keep the house although I might have to forgo electricity and heating. So that unfortunately means no replica MV race bike. Damn.

I knew about the Kay replica but the Varese bike ? I'd like to know more just out of interest

MVista, and indeed MVixen are very bad influences and will lead you astray if your not careful!!!

The 'Varese' bikes are almost 'continuation' bikes. A phrase the car guys like to use to differenciate official copies from replicas. As they are available from, and indeed made by MV (sort of) they could be called a 'real' MV.

They are made in a workshop at Schiranna by a group of very talented engineers with help and research from all the usual classic MV race sourses. The museum, Castelli, Elly, etc, etc all have a hand in it somewhere.

The first bike was finished in 1998 and a small batch where made. Slightly later Ago got involved and you could only get a bike if he OK'd it....the price also nearly doubled!

I have had the chance, on many occasions, to study these bikes and they are amazing. Just a couple of weekends a go i had a 'real' 1960's bike next to a 'continuation' machine and apart from some slightly better welding etc it was very difficult to tell them apart.

A four cylinder machine is also in development, as i imagine are other projects. However the current economic climate has somewhat slowed things down.

Cheers.

Dorian.
