Sale being done in conjunction with Devitt MCN Ally Pally show and supersprint
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.
