Legendary watchmaker George Daniels’ MV Agusta ticks all boxes

Legendary watchmaker George Daniels wasn’t only stimulated by miniscule mechanicals – he also had a passion for cars and bikes. His 1976 MV Agusta 750S America has just appeared in the Classic Driver Market…

We’ve discussed Daniels’ penchant for classy motorcyles before, but this 1976 MV Agusta 750S America is probably our favourite of his bikes to come to market so far. George was apparently pretty keen on it too, as he kept the bike for 26 years at his home in the Isle of Man.

No mechanical complications?

On top of the horological provenance, the bike has also been signed ‘in the paint’ by eight-time World Champion Phil Read, and is claimed to have covered just 6,220 miles from new. What’s more, considering Daniels’ mechanical proficiency, we’d imagine it was rather well maintained during his ownership.
