Not much gets past our Dorian.The bike in Sydney has no right to be labeld an MV at all. Jap, i think Kawasaki, engine and no MV genuine parts that i can see.
I spend a large amount of my time trying to help people with genuine bikes and it realy pisses me off when stuff like this appears pretending to be an MV!!!!
OK rant over..........off to play with some genuine MV's in Holland for the weekend.
now...................................if someone was to build a 1975 Phil Read 500cc replica, Magni frame and special hand built Magni race tank, fairing, seat, original factory race plasma rotors, original mags, 38mm Ceriani tubes and................the donor engine from a 1968 600, rebuilt (with light weight "exotic" components) / bored out to produce 100+ rear wheel Hp plus dry clutch and chain drive and...........hand fabricated, light weight exhaust all for the purpose of track use..............then that would be:smoking::smoking::smoking::smoking::smoking::smoking::naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty::jsm::jsm::jsm:Roll on the 2012 Island Classic:yo::jsm::jsm::jsm:
Dave and Mark Kay build replicas of these GP machines - at a price. (..they trade as Meccanica Verghera).Awesome!.
Is there any companies building these replicas,i think there would be a market for it. I would love one
What sort of price are they asking,couldn't find any information on them on the net.Their website says its under constructionDave and Mark Kay build replicas of these GP machines - at a price. (..they trade as Meccanica Verghera).
They entered one of them in last year's TT races, and were setting the pace when the bike came to a halt after ingesting bird feathers on lap four. It had lapped faster with a novice on board (104mph) than Agostini had done on a works machine in his heyday. :jsm:
(..although I suspect modern-day tyre technology and improvements in the road surface had much to do with it).
