I have what is probably an unhealthy obsession about unrestored bikes. Here's one of the best I've ridden and enjoyed, Dorian's 1948 MV 125 - a rare four speed version with a chain primary drive motor that runs backwards! It has MV 125 brush-painted by hand on the front mudguard crest. I can't help wondering - who painted that on? What was his name? What did he have for lunch that day in 1948?
