New to me '56 175 CS

Greeting all,

I thought I would introduce myself and share with you my new to me MV Agusta 175 CS. I bought the bike recently from Alex B. a member here I believe. It's a beautiful bike and it rides great. I'm in the Design business and have a thing for vintage (and new) Italian design. I still have much to learn about these great machines and I hope you all don't mind a bunch of newbi questions in the future.

All the best,

Tom

Nice looking bike and congrats.

Not to burst your bubble, but MV didn't manufacture any '56 CS's with the Disco Volante tank. If it's truly a '56 CS, someone bolted the Disco tank on the bike.

A '56 CS would look more like the attached photo.

Wouldn't that bike be the '56 175 CSTL? I read somewhere that the Disco tank was optional up though '57 ... although I cannot confirm this.
