Description for luxury vehicle MV Agusta 750S America-Outstanding Pedigree and Autographed By John Surtees

Most of you know the history of MV Augusta, with their 37 world championships with the likes of Read, Surtees and Agostini, and this model in particular, conceived by the U.S. importer, Chris Garville, as a limited-edition (200 for the 1975 model year) sport bike for the American market based on the existing 750 Sport; that bike became known as the 750S America.

This 1975 750S America was one of the earliest models imported into the US, with engine number 221012 and frame number 221009. 
First of only two owners was the importer, Garville Corporation, where it was used in displays, shows and magazine tests: as featured in Cycle, Big Bike and Motor Cycle World to name a few.  Ownership was transferred to Peter Garville (brother of importer Chris) in 1984 where it stayed in his possession until 1990. 

As second owner, I acquired the bike by way of famed restorer Perry Bushong (one of the first MV Augusta dealers in the US). Perry and I have had a life long friendship and working relationship and he knew that this bike was for me. When I heard the sound of the 4 into 4 exhaust I was hooked and that is when it became mine.  In 1994 I had the opportunity to meet John Surtees at Daytona and he was gracious enough to autograph the fuel tank. After that the bike was ridden sporadically, mostly at bike events, rallys and shows until 2014 when I went back to Perry to ask him to do the restoration, which was completed in the Fall of 2016. We added the racing exhaust built by Dave Kay, something I had always wanted to do as it looks fantastic and sounds like no other motorcycle on the road!  

I have had twenty six years of stewardship of this amazing motorcycle and now its time to let someone else have their turn.

Included with the bike is a large collection of spare parts, brochures, magazine articles and factory correspondence to support its provenance. 

I ask for a non refundable deposit of $1000 at the end of the auction. As for shipping, I have several shippers I can recommend if needed. Also note that the spare parts are very heavy and will likely need to be placed on a pallet so take that into consideration when calculating shipping costs. 

Anything else you would like to know about the bike please contact me.
