    East coast, schmeest schmost.

    Keyboard Motorcycle Shippers or J.C.Motors.

    Max $750 coast-to-coast.

    I've used both more than a dozen times each. Enclosed, ensured, tied-down specialized bike pallets. None better, great communication, online booking.

    The '68 Fastback sold for $8,830.00, and I would have shipped that one in a heartbeat.

    I believe that's the very first MV 4-cylinder streetbike that was recently featured in a major magazine article. IIRC, Lawrence of Arabia's Brough Superior is the only motorcycle so far to bring 7 figures at auction. This may be #2.

    I spoke to an owner of a similar MV and asked him about the brakes. He said "they wouldn't stop a wish"

    A Clubmate owns an MV America 750.
    Below 5k rpm it can't get out of its own way. It is a very heavy bike at over 520 lbs dry weight.
    And it is very uncomfortable for anyone over 5'4".
    Luckily he is 5'4" and doesn't mind revving the piss out of it , as needed.
    Then it goes quite well.
    But I think there are many better roadbikes from that era, the Commando would be one.
    Still, the sound that the MV makes at speed is intoxicating...

    Might be another example (other than shaft drive) of Count Agusta's efforts to keep MV 4-cylinder streetbikes from ever being raced.

    That is exactly right-Augusta came up with the 600 first to stop anybody racing them in the 500 class, and you would have thought that Count Augusta with the whole of an aircraft factory at his disposal would have come up with hydraulic operated front disc brakes-he would have started a new trend…….

    That $25,000. bike is a bargin compared to this one.

    *My guess is the rebuilder doesn't want to sell this bike and somehow posting it for sale is actually a form of advertising for their bike restoration business.
