When MV Agusta debuted the Pullman at the 2nd. Brussel`s Show in January 1953, it was assumed that the company would make a couple of thousand and then the model would fade away. Fortunately for MV the Pullman was a roaring success. With the comfort
of a scooter, the look of a serious light motorcycle and priced aggressively, the public took to the Pullman like a long lost relative. Balloon tires gave it a big bike look but underpinnings were strictly simple. The front suspension was a conventional telescopic fork, while the rear was a swing arm arrangement built into the engine with two integrated arms, a hydraulic central shock absorber and two lateral mechanic shock absorbers. The transmission was a twist grip gear selector on the handlebars.
The superb 125 Pullman on offer here was restored to a very high standard by a former engineer of MV – Agusta using period original parts.
