I have a 1956 mv 125 or 175 (not sure yet what it is exactly) that is completely torn apart. I want to put it back together, but I need help! I need gaskets, an exhaust pipe, maybe something to modernize the magneto, a manual of some sort, anything you think could be of help.
I live in northern California so I would love to meet with someone in the nearby who has a similar bike or experience with them.
Thanks!

Hi Greg.

Welcome to the forum and indeed the world of classic MV ownership.

Put a picture up if you can.

If it's 1956 and OHC it will be a 175, if pushrod it will be a 125cc. The 175 pushrod engine didn't appear untill 58. Of course this is assuming it's a 4 stroke.

You will find all you need in relation to parts, info and manuals etc at the MV Owners Club of GB. http://www.mvownersclub.co.uk/

There classic spares scheme will help you with parts including new exhausts etc. Just speak to Jerry Ashton here [email protected]

There is also a wealth of info here on this site and across the web so you should be well served.

Have fun.

Dorian.

hi and welcome

There is a thread somewhere in the classic section which has a list of parts suppliers for classic Italian bikes including a possible source of gaskets and another for reproduction exhausts. Some may no longer exist but it will be a starting point.

cheers

Call me a Grumpy Old Git if you like but wouldn't it be nice to get a reply or thanks when you help out a new member!!

I'm not the only one on this forum who has gone out of there way to welcome and help mainly new classic MV owners. Discussions are taking place behind the scenes as to whether we should bother.

Others views on this would be most welcome.

Maybe i'm just beinf too old fashioned!

OK moan over:)

Grumpy Old Git!

There, done Dorian, no one can accuse me of an inability to follow direction. ;)

A highly valid point you bring up, I think a simple 'thank you' is pretty painless really and does go a long way, I've had a couple of instances here where I've sent resources - diagrams, pics and not a simple thanks in return - kind of leaves me cold.

That of course, won't stop me helping others if I can, but if you message me & I am less than enthusiastic about helping or replying you can assume you are one of those that I just spoke of.

Funny you should mention old fashioned Dorian, we go with the old fashioned bikes & supposedly love what the era offered - manners were a big part of that era.



I thank all you guys on here who have helped me out and giving me advice also. I would be lost without you guys, thanks Dorian,Rob and Russ. Cheers
This certainly doesn't apply to you Adrian - it's a pleasure to watch you blossom under the weight of expectation & duty that classics seem to bring with them, you remind me of myself a long time ago & I still don't know anything, so there's a peak into your future :eek: Sorry. :laughing:

Adrian.

I certainly wasn't including you my friend. Your well on the way to being inflicted with the MV virus as much as most of us on here :naughty:

Your most likely right Oepie it has been a VERY LONG winter as you know. Gues what though?.....i actualy got out on an MV today:):):)

Rob.

I consider being old fashioned as a highly desirable quality, well the bit's that suits me anyway:naughty:

Now let's see if i have shamed anyone into coming forward!

Dorian.
