Protar MV Augusta F4

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, started my new project of a Protar MV Augusta F4 as my V-Max hit a snag :S

so here's the stage it is at, trial assembly of parts & front forks rebuilt using stainless & brass tubing...handle bar rebuilt,...rebuilding brake calipers...cleaning up swing arm...updates to follow...:)

Hi Mark .
The Agusta is a very nice machine for me.

Unfortunately, Protar has kept a lot of details very simple, there would have been more in 1/9.

Your construction, with the improvements made by you, I will pursue curiously.
You'll make something unique from that!

Thanks Karl, 

you are 100% right about it being pretty simple & I hope to get some much needed detail in the right places...I don’t think I will get to your level yet but we will see how it goes...🥴

started with some engraving on the chain to improve its looks rebuilding the rear shock & spring o some pictures to follow...

I love MV’s, but the lack of detail puts me off, plus I’ve not heard good things about Protar kits. I’m not sure I want the hassle of having to rework everything and then end up with an odd-size bike in my cabinet.

 

I’ll be keenly following this and see if you can convince me to get one... 👍

Goodluck with this build @Fazer1006 Protar can be challenging at times but I have confidence in you mate (especially after seeing your Norton)

Very nice progress Mark.
The rear shock absorption you seem to have revised.
Unfortunately, you do not recognize it well in the picture.
The hex nut definitely does not look like a kit.
And the honeycomb look very good too.
