1953 MV Agusta 125cc SuperSport for Sale

Posted on December 6, 2013 by tad

My fantasy garage is filled up with the classics: a big Moto Guzzi V7 or LeMans, a bevel-drive Ducati, a Laverda Jota…  Manly, brutal bikes all. But I always find myself prowling around, looking for MV Agustas.  And while I do lust after the modern Brutales, F3′s and F’4′s, I always have an eye out for the little ones, the sporting 125′s and 175′s.

  They show up from time to time online and pricing varies wildly.

I do love the idea of a burly, powerful machine that is way more than I can handle, I’m a firm believer in the old adage, “It’s better to ride a slow bike fast than ride a fast bike slow…” Honestly, the guy I saw in a tank top and half helmet, stiff-arming his brand new Panigale up the Garden State Parkway probably thought he looked pretty cool, but it was pretty obvious he had no idea what he was doing… On the other hand, the guy I saw riding a GS500E at a recent track day made me smile as he passed liter bikes and serious sporting machines in the corners…

It also doesn’t hurt that, while these little MV’s may be pretty pricey, they’re still generally a whole lot less than the bigger four-cylinder bikes…  These look like they’d be a hoot to ride on a winding, two-lane road. Or look great parked up in your living room.

This particular two-stroke machine looks familiar…

From the original eBay listing: 1953 MV Agusta 125cc Super Sport

Selling my ultra rare 1953 MV Agusta 125 Super Sport.This motorcycle was purchased from the renowned Guy Webster museum in California.It has the level of restoration to go in the Guggenhiem display.The bike traveled in Italy’s famous Moto Giro which is noted on front number plate prior to full professional restoration level.The gas tank was just sealed for future settlement or ride ability.The frame work and fenders on this particular year lends itself to such a cafe graceful look compared to it’s predecessors.The seat is a Radaelli which is a long comfortable seating position seat.The handle bars which I choose to call mustache bars are a piece of jewelry that have emmvee hand grips in like new condition.The motorcycle comes complete with original Automobile Club D’Italia paperwork framed from 1953.Where are you going to find a 1953 MV Agusta motorcycle going back that far with original doc’s.

This one looks an awful lot like the one that was for sale a while back and posted here on this site. It may not have found a buyer then, but maybe second time’s the charm? These are rare machines, but sometimes that rarity can work against you.

Hopefully, it will find a home this time around.


1955 MV Agusta 175CS

Posted on November 7, 2013 by Brian

Small displacement. Overhead  cam. Red paint. This 1955 MV Agusta 175CS checks the boxes for an Italian motorcycle. Then on top, a nickname based on a unique gas tank.

Maybe not the best for today’s roads, but perfect for inside the house.

From the seller

Iconic representation of the famous overhead cam road sportster. This bike earned its name as the Disco Volante by the form of its bulbous gas tank. Developed by Mario Rossi, after designs made by the Count Domenico Agusta in the early 1950’s.

Representing the new direction the Factory went into after leaving the strokers behind, and very successful in production numbers. It became the basis of a number of sporty roadsters.

I kid. There are plenty of riders out there who take their small Italian bikes and race them on the roadways. The Giro is an event for these bikes, and owners take great time, effort and pride in their accomplishing great things on these little bikes.

More from the seller

This version was available from 1955 on towards 1957, but the tank was only available on this type as an extra until 1956. The tank derived from its sister bike, the CSS, which was characterized by the front suspension following Earless design. In this CS form however, telescopic front suspension was adopted as the earless suspension has cast some doubts about its road-safety after race accidents.

The engine was detuned from the CSS, by means of slightly less pronounced cam form. Compression ratio was also a slight detune compared to the CSS, by means of a less pronounced high piston. Production number did not climb over 5000 units.

From the description given by the seller, it looks like there is some hot rod potential for this engine. Manufactures have sold to a price point for many years, and power has been a way to increase price point, or in this case lower it. What is great, is that after 50+ years how many upward mobile restorations and modifications have been made? Will you keep this 1955 MV Agusta 175CS as is?

Store it inside next to your coffe table? Or hot rod it and go ripping around? BB

1953 MV Agusta 125cc Super Sport

Posted on October 24, 2013 by Brian

There is just something about a single cycling, small displacement, Italian motorcycle in Red. It makes you want to drain all the fluids, and put it inside the house to look at it. This 1953 MV Agusta Super Sport looks like it might have gotten this treatment.

Today, at least where I live, 125cc is not going to keep me out of trouble. Yes maybe around the block, but any further, those 125cc better be pretty hot cubic centimeters. Sure there is the Giro, a tour small displacement bikes. But really back roads to the local, locally owner operated coffee shop is about my limit in comfort with small cc bikes. Will you keep this 1953 MV Agusta Super Sport inside?

Of will you be hitting the highway on your way to work? Or is there a middle ground? BB
