Description: 1954 MV 175 CSS Disco Volante
No reserve

Vendue sans titre de circulation
Cadre n° 4173414

- Superbe présentation
- Rare "compétition-client"
- Marque prestigieuse
- Sans réserve

A côté de ses 125, 350 et 500, MV Agusta présentait en 1953 une nouvelle 175 à arbre à cames en tête. A côté de la version route, le constructeur proposait un modèle plus sportif doté d''un plus gros carburateur, de jantes en aluminium et d''autres modifications. Le réservoir de cette moto, très évasé à la base, lui valait le surnom de "Disco Volante" (soucoupe volante) et, un peu plus tard, MV proposait une version encore plus sportive et dotée d''une fourche Earles, la Super Sport (SS). Elle laissait place en 1955 à la "Squalo" (requin), dont le style était très différent à cause notamment d''un réservoir taillé pour la compétition. La Squalo recevait aussi une boîte de vitesses à cinq rapports. Ces motos ont rencontré un grand succès à l''époque auprès des pilotes amateurs qui les utilisaient pour les courses du week-end.
Anciennement propriété du spécialiste italien des réservoirs, M. Libanore, cette moto est arrivée dans la collection d''un amateur bourguignon par l''intermédiaire du restaurateur de motos G. De Marchi, établit dans la région du Frioul, en Italie. Elle est aujourd''hui la propriété d''Artcurial SAS. Elle est équipée d''un réservoir en aluminium de Squalo et ne diffère de cette dernière que par peu de choses : boîte quatre rapports et magnéto disposée différemment. Très jolie "compétition-client", cette moto rare offre une belle présentation et procurera à son propriétaire les joies pures que pouvaient connaître les passionnés de moto des années 1950.



Sold without title
Frame No. 4173414

- Beautiful condition
- A rare "customer competition" machine
- A prestigious marque
- No reserve

In addition to its 125, 350 and 500, MV Agusta launched in 1953 a new 175 with overhead camshaft. Other than the normal street version, the manufacturer also offered a sportier model with a larger carburetor, aluminum wheels and other modifications. The tank of this bike, very flared at the base, was given the nickname "Disco Volante" (Flying Saucer) and a little later, MV proposed an even sportier version with an Earles fork, the Super Sport (SS). It gave way in 1955 to the "Squalo" (shark) whose style was very different because the tank was built for competition. The Squalo also received a five-speed gearbox. These bikes met a great success at that time with amateur pilots who used them for weekend races.
Formerly owned by the Italian tank specialist, Mr. Libanore, this bike has arrived in an important collection in the Burgundy region through the restorer of motorcycles G. De Marchi, from the region of Friuli, Italy. It belongs today to Artcurial SAS. It is equipped with a Squalo aluminum tank and differs from the latter in a few details: a four-speed gearbox and a magneto arranged differently. This very nice "customer competition" machine looks beautiful and will provide its owner the pure joy that excited motorcycle enthusiasts in the 1950s.
