The $17000 MV 750 Sport

Update on the 'as found' 750 Sport that was auctioned in Florida recently.

Looks like a certain well known US dealer ended up with it!

I wonder what the price is now!

Bloody lovely bike and what a find. Imagine discovering this at the back of an old barn

Yes I can imagine finding this at the back of an old barn. The only problem is I have yet to do so.

Looks ok but I wonder what condition the insides of the engine is? Hopefully reasonable to good.

At that price it's doesn't matter if the engine is rusted solid

Even if you put another $10000 into the engine it would still be cheap.

I would have loved to keep this bike with all it's 'patina' and just sorted it mechanicaly. This would, i am sure, have upset all the folk who think a bike of this type should be immaculate and i love to upset the cognoscenti!

You have to love those air horns

If only "stoneheart" has asked better questions in his thread on this bike, we may have been able to help find better bid parameters

So, who's Ross the Boss?

...and, Dorian, I would have done the same.

Wow what a bargain, wonder what they will do with it.
I just went and saw my engine and we put a camera scope down the cylinder to check it out .engine hasn't even been run in still has new markings. This now confirms the low miles as correct.

I wonder how many of us would have bought this rare gem with the sole intention to sell it on for a big profit...

No me ... I'd rather cut my tongue out with a rusty knife.
