Exclamation Hey Guys: Really need your help!

I'm almost at the point of having my F4 bodywork and fuel tank painted.

I want to get a fuel tank decal made up the same as was used by Gary Hocking and John Hartle on their 1960's Red & Silver MV racing bikes when they raced against the likes of Mike Hailwood and others.

Back in them days Gary Hocking raced MV's under the MV Agusta "Privat", a curious name applied to the fuel tank to indicate that he did not officially represent the manufacturer.

I want to have the same fuel tank decal made up for my F4, and would appreciate your help in finding a decent colour image of this "Privat" tank badge.

The only colour image I could find was off a DVD of Mike Hailwood and as you can see it isn't a very good sample.

So if anyone has a decent image of this MV Privat decal in a book or poster, then I really would appreciate a JPEG..

Cheers Guys
John

It should be pretty easy to reproduce from that, if you know what the detail below the lettering is - MV logo perhaps?

Cheers Josh..

You did better than me in finding that close up picture of Hocking on his MV.. Cheers for the effort Bud.

To get a decent reproduction of the original tank badge, I need a pin point sharp resolution image of the "Privat" badge to send to the decal people.

For them to have any sods chance of getting this decal right, they need to have the specific colour and dimensions of the image.

Mark from Timemachine kindly sent me this Black & White image, but Iím not 100% sure that the tank badge on Hockingís bike had the MV logo below the Privat wording.

Iím hoping that a forum member with some MV classic bike interest has a colour image of these 1960ís bikes when they where raced under the Privateer entry.

Cheers
John

It does look like the cog without the wings, perhaps with the old-style MV nestled within.

Yeah it's a difficult one to call..

I've plenty of books on Meriden Trumpets, Laverda Jota's, mass amounts of Ducati books but no books of the MV's. If I knew of a book which have a close up colour picture of this badge, then I'd buy it.

Gav..

Some of us are going on a ride out tomorrow ( weather permitting) from Beds over to Oxfordshire... Meeting up point is the Maccy D's on the A505 junction of the A4146 near Leighton Buzzard ( Billington Road, Leighton Buzzard LU7 9HH ).. meeting time is 09:30.

If you fancy coming along, then feel free and bring as many with as you like.

I'm texting the usual suspects this morning.

Hey JDS,

If you get a book called 'MV Agusta Fours The Complete Story' by Mick Walker you will have plenty of Info in there but unfortunately no Decal like the one you posted...only like Demitris. also most of the pictures are black and white....Don't know if this helped.
