In conjunction with the Devitt MCN Ally Pally show and supersprint in England’s Alexandra Palace, Bonhams will stage a single-consignor auction featuring 74 motorcycles.
The bikes come from the Roberto Anelli Collection and include the 1973 MV Agusta 500/3 Grand Prix racer ridden by Giacomo Agostini, who won seven consecutive world championships from 1966-1972. Agostini retired with 122 Grand Prix victories and 15 world championships.
Bonhams expects the motorcycle to sell for £250,000 to £350,000 ($320,000 to $450,000).
The auction docket includes eight MV Agusta bikes, including a 1971 750S and a 1977 750S America, the later having been ridden only 42 miles since new. Both bikes are expected to sell for six-figure amounts.
Also on the docket is a 2000 MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro with an engine based on the design of Ferrari’s Formula 1 engine.
