Post Listing Update: This MV did not meet reserve despite 19 bids up to $7,100 on eBay.

Built between 1970 and 1974, the MV Agusta 350S was offered in a variety of models including a fully-faired sport bike and an exquisite scrambler. 1972 brought electronic ignition into the fold, which was announced with “ELETTRONICA” on the sidecovers and as part of the model name for the standard sporty model.

The 349cc engine produced about 30 horsepower, enough for a top speed of just over 100 miles per hour. A predecessor of the incredible Ipotesi, this bike was called “half the size of a MV four but twice the fun” by reviews like this in a 1997 issue of Classic Bike.

This example has been “partially customized with a fiberglass racing seat and a modified instrument panel”, and the ignition key is now under the tank. This bike is going to need some work and the seller notes that he has a “very fair reserve” because of that. The new battery has not yet been wired into the electrical system, the lights don’t work and the bike is missing a horn. In addition, the speedometer cable is missing so the true mileage is not known. The seller says that this bike is in very good mechanical condition but it needs someone who understands electrical systems better than he does.
