The story of how it could raise the value: to ask directly to the heir of Enzo Ferrari’s permission to use the symbol of Ferrari was David Kay, the creator of the most famous motorcycle MV Augusta, as a tribute to Drake.

On receipt of a positive response from Peter Kay has long thought that he wanted to build motorcycles Enzo Ferrari, who died two years before it needed a special tribute to honor such an important character. Hence the idea to start from two-stroke motorcycles Scott Drake that he used early in his career as a pilot project has been long and very detailed and took more than four years and more than 3 thousand hours of craftsmanship.

Now the bike is ready to join the collection of one lucky fan but has to contend with in the course of the museums or collections open to the public who may be interested in buying more than one piece in the history of cycling. To know who will win the day must wait for the auction: the value oscillates between 90 thousand and 120 thousand euros, among other things a little ‘less than estimated by the magazines a few years ago: a base bid that will gorge to many.
