Post Listing Update: This 750S did not meet reserve despite 14 bids up to $41,600 on eBay in New York, New York.
Earlier this week I shared a Magni Sport 1200S from the Stuart Parr Collection – it was built to look like the iconic MV Agusta 750S. Well, turns out Stuart’s also got one of those, and he’s putting it up for sale as well.
MV’s first attempt at a four-cylinder road bike was surprisingly ugly, but they more than made up for it in 1969 with the introduction of the 750S. The dramatic red/white/blue styling was complemented by a displacement bump to 743cc, resulting in 69 horsepower. It wasn’t really a sport bike with 555 pounds of weight and a shaft final drive, but the sound of the straight-cut gears and exhaust were thrilling nonetheless. Other components for the 1973 model included Ceriani 35mm forks, Grimeca brakes, and Marzocchi shocks. For more on this legendary machine, check out this Retrospective by Clement Salvadori on Rider Magazine.
This example (VIN: 2140221) was originally sold by Gus Kuhn out of the UK to “aircraft and motorcycle collector and AC Autocraft owner, Brian Anglis.” It then went to Jeff Dutton, who restored the bike in 1990, and it is supposedly known by Ian Falloon, who referred to it in his book “MV Agusta Fours”. The seller simply states that it “is an excellent running and riding example.”
