This MV Agusta type MV4C was delivered new to Mr Gunter Sachs one of the most famous and stylish Playboys of the highlife of the sixties and seventies. Sachs who was married to Brigitte Bardot from 1966 to 1969 is a passionate photographer film director and art collector who inherited together with his brother the company Fichtel & Sachs. Always a guidepost for style and the latest toy Sachs bought this motorbike on the 14th May 1974 for 2.618.000 Italian Lire directly from Meccanica Verghera in Milano Italy. A copy of the original invoice comes with the motorcycle.ConditionThe motorbike is believed to be in good overall condition and comes directly from its second owner a close friend of Mr Sachs were it has very rarely been used within the last two years.
