Hello,

I am helping a friend sell a few of his bikes and one of them is the #269 F4 Tamburini. You can see a lot more pictures at genauautowerks.com

My friend purchased this bike in the big auction in 2013 that sold all of Gary Kohs 71 MV Agusta bike collection. The bike has never been titled here in the states and only has 147 kms on the ODO. This bike has been kept showroom perfect and my friend starts it up every month and moves the bike but as it's not titled, it has seen very little street action.

On the web link above, you will see plenty of pics as well as a riding video we shot when we took the pictures. The bike is absolutely ready to ride. My friend is getting a bit older now and can't ride his bikes as easily as he used to.

We are taking offers on the bike now and might post it on Bring A Trailer later if we do not sell it before hand. But if anyone is interested, please email me, ingo @ genauautowerks.com or call my mobile (415) 730-5352. The bike is in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thanks!

Ingo

Too bad it is missing all the pertinent extras and the certificate of authenticity.... The certificate may not be a big deal, but the exhaust, cover, grip covers, etc that it came with are.

I don't mean to offend but... I just don't understand why people by stuff like this and DON'T ride them, yes i understand some buy as an investment but its a crying shame that they are never used for their intended purpose!!! 147km FFS!!

Not even necessarily as an investment. It's pride of ownership, and for some it might be solely 'bragging rights'.

For a serious collector, it might be akin to buying a Monet or Renoir and stashing it in a temperature-controlled vault; or a connoisseur of fine wine or Scotch whisky who will not open his $10,000 plus bottle. The there are others down the scale: collectors of Barbie Dolls never opened or played with and first edition stamps never posted.

The joy and pride of ownership of any motorcycle can be just as rewarding (or more) to some people. We all share this common love. For those who choose to keep these bikes in such pristine condition, we owe gratitude because future generations will also be able to share that joy, rather than simply saying 'I wish' over a website or magazine article.

This is just my opinion because the 'not riding the bike' topic is close to my heart.:smile2::wink2:

I feel the same way, however to Nigerl’s point, someone somewhere needs to do something like this to document history. The ONLY way I’d consider doing something like this is if 1.) I had tons of expendable income, and 2.) I had a “rider” to go along with the non-rider. Lord knows my living room could use some “motorcycle art” 😉.

?

I notice a price still hasn't been listed per the Forum Rules.......

1st time I saw a Tamburini was at the dealership in Brea, California, the owner Tom Hill had it parked at the end of a hallway,
in front of his office
He asked me what I thought of it......My answer?
" Well if it had more green on it ......I'd say 'Rasta Mon' "
He laughed so hard I thought he'd piss his pants :grin2::grin2::grin2:
Rare? No, there are 300
Expensive? No, New $42k list
Too rare to ride? Buuuuuhaha

Now this is rare;
Juan Manuel Fangio's '56 Ferrari 290MM one of 4 made, there are 3 left......this one is chassis #0626, engine #0626
After it's purchase in December 2015 for only $28,020,000, it was DRIVEN THROUGH ROMA WITH A CARABINIERI ESCORT,
a friend drove it
In 63 years it's never been crashed, although raced by many people

Hey, sorry about not posting the price. He's just deciding upon whether to sell it at auction or not and they generally don't want a price bandied about. He's looking for something in the area of $32-33k for the bike.
