Came across this photo of MV and other marques tyre pumps. Apparently they are all original pumps (not reproductions which are available).

I know Phil, who took the photo, and asked him if all the pumps were original to which he replied 'yes'. It is a good reference to what pumps were available in the day. I have a replica silver emmevi pump

Try emailing this guy. Trioschi Eermes [email protected] He had stand at Imola Monstra Scambio a few years ago. He had all kinds of very nice replica air pumps for Italian bikes. One knowledgeable MV & Ducati singles individual bought 8--10 pumps for around 60 euro each for people back in the states.

Hi Brad, Emmevi,

Thanks!!
I will certainly get in contact with them.
It 's an upgrade for the Checca. I have to find and buy a rubber band for holding the battery. Then it will be perfect.

Brad, I think you know the Checca, I bought the MV in Belgium.
It is a Checca with rectangular tail light.

All the best, Bert

Hi Bert, if it has the rectangular tail light are you sure it is a 63 model? I have 2 1963 99cc Sports and a 1961 99cc GTE (incomplete). All mine have circular tail lights as per the parts manual. Have you checked your casting dates? Brad. Best of luck with the battery strap mate!

Update Pumps

Came across this photo of MV and other marques tyre pumps. Apparently they are all original pumps (not reproductions which are available).
Just revisiting this thread.

I reckon that first 6 pumps are original and the later 3 are reproductions.

Here are some shots of my pumps:





The top pump is an original, the middle two are excellent reproductions & the bottom one is a so-so reproduction out of Germany.

Difference between the repo & original hose:

Handle of the Original reads : 'Silca - esportazione Milano Italiano."





Reproductions:

Hey Rob, sorry for asking such a fool question ( as I clearly am one ), but where does the actual name "emmevi" come form originally, is it specific to that model or someone's name ?

Not a silly question at all Donsy.

It is "MV" phonetically - particularly in Italian as the lettering would be M = "Emme" & V would be "Voo" they clearly wanted it pronounced M V(ee) much as we do in English but in Italian to get the VEE sound it is VI - So 'emmevi' was a reminder that the company was MV as we say it :)

Even now if you travel Italy - you get M Voo Agoosta more often then not - the confusing part is that they want M Voo to be M Vee bust still want Agusta to be Agoosta - if you have any Italian background the nonsense will make perfect sense....lol.

Just another thing that makes me love the marque so much - the idiosyncrasies are tailor made to my own personality! :ahhh: :laughing:

It's surprising how many are unaware of where emmevi comes from, If I'm in a 'silly' mood I get the person to say emmevi with gusto, including hand gestures, as if they were a passionate Italian. Hopefully they will get it eventually.

:laughing: Actually, I reckon that should become the official way of doing it now ;)
