A stunning 1974 MV Agusta 750 Sport which we are authentically restoring to our award winning high standards of authenticity. This example is a true unicorn example with original wheel rims, original spokes, original nuts and bolts and original paint which allows us to perfectly match the colours. This beautiful, low mileage MV Agusta 750 Sport comes with the very rare factory fairing and screen, these were very rarely fitted because it was such an expensive factory accessory. The fairing really adds value to this stunning Italian classic motorcycle and still presents in the original coloured gel coat rather than having been painted. This machine has passed all due diligence and is a highly original example in factory condition but requires a full restoration, finding such an original example to do this work to makes this a bit of a unicorn. The motorcycle is presently stripped, ready for paint, engine rebuild, rewire, all plating to be completed, full rebuild and the test riding process. The test riding process is a critical part of a classic motorcycle restoration, as you can read in this article The Importance of Test Riding Classic Motorcycles. We expect the motorcycle to be ready by February 2024 with all test riding complete. All of our work is included in the fixed price restoration which offers buyers great value and an unlimited mileage one year warranty within the UK.
Blue chip classic motorcycle investment
This blue chip classic motorcycle investment offers great headroom, plenty of riding pleasure and the chance to own an iconic Italian classic motorcycle with an incredible history. Ferrari owners who rode motorcycles were the bijou, hand made, Italian motorcycle producer’s target market The MV Agusta 750 Sport was the Ferrari of the motorcycle industry, in its hey day in the 1970s, based on racing history. By the time this machine hit the showroom floors, it was displaying a sticker on the petrol tank which boasted 37 world championships to the MV Agusta factory name. Riders had clamoured for a factory ride so it’s no surprise that riders such as John Surtees, Mike Hailwood, Phil Read, Gary Hocking and Giacomo Agostini rode these fantastic motorcycles to world championships. Finding investment grade MV Agusta 750 Sports is extremely challenging, as they were owned by riders who bought them to ride extremely quickly, so many, many of these rare machines were written off or had engine replacements. These beautiful rolling works of art were incredibly rare when they were new with only, reportedly, 583 machines ever built. Classic motorcycle enthusiasts and investors are so desperate to acquire these beautiful motorcycles that in July 2023, Iconic Auctioneers got £85,500 for this example. Although a very low figure for a 1973 MV Agusta 750 Sport, it was a world record for an example with the incorrect engine, incorrect exhausts and needing a lot of work. The example which made £85,500 will never be investment grade, unless someone has the correct motor, correct exhausts and very deep pockets to restore the machine. That particular sale clearly demonstrates how eager people are to buy these machines and how difficult it is to find an investment grade example as the auction house made it clear that it had the wrong engine in it. The motorcycle we are offering is a completely different proposition and is a blue chip classic motorcycle investment.
Award winning restorations
Our award winning restorations are recognised for their authenticity having won the Concours D’Elegance at Blenheim Palace’s Salon Privé when they last had motorcycles there in 2021. On that occasion we took the Most Exceptional Motorcycle Award over Sammy Miller’s Munch Mammoth restoration, as you can read in The Motorcycle Broker Wins Salon Privé with a 1975 MV Agusta 750 Sport. The judges loved the authenticity of our finishes and of the entire machine. We take particular care to recreate the colours of the motorcycle exactly, which we can do with this machine as the original paint, although needing replacing, is still present to match. We also match the type of finish, matching the level of “orange peel” to the original paint where it’s present. On the original machine where colour without lacquer is used, we do exactly the same and make our modern, tough 2K paint look like the paints used in the 1970s by the factory. Earlier in 2023 we won the Best Japanese Motorcycle at Stafford Classic Motorcycle Show for our restoration of a 1969 Honda CB750 Sandcast. We have also just won a local show with a client’s 1976 Yamaha XT500 we restored, again because of the authenticity of the machine. Our objective is for people who don’t know to believe that our restored classic motorcycles are, in fact, new unrestored examples found in a crate. Our philosophy is the exact trend that is being created in the classic car market at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance. Authentic classic motorcycle restorations don’t just look incredible, but they have a feeling that only the factory original can exude which is why they are award winning restorations.
