Pebble Beach Concours dElegance: 1979 MV Agusta Magni Superlight up for Auction PBCE MV Agusta Magni Superlight 6 560x374

We find ourselves down the California Coast this weekend, hobnobbing with the suits down at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Amongst the bevy of tasty four-wheeled vehicles that seem to abound here (who knew?), we found a few motorcycles that we thought would fancy you, our dear reader. First up, is this 1979 MV Agusta Magni Superlight that is up for auction at the MidAmerica Auctions here at the Concours.

Built by MV specialist, MV Meccanica Vergherea, this MV is a runner, with 5 miles on the clock. Inside, you’ll find a magnesium crankcases, an 830cc displacement, electric starter, and internal gears which have been machined and lightened to race specs.

It looks good to us, but with an “buy it now” price of $162,000, we’ll have to just appreciate the memories of this bike. Besides, it would totally clash with the curtains in our living room.
