ILOC (Laverda) – Buying a Laverda

Buying a Laverda (Updated – December 2008. Triple prices are climbing, due to rarity. There are occasionally bikes below �3,000, but they’re getting rarer. Both types of twins (old new)remain a bargain, often selling below �2,000 for the later Zane twins. Get a water-cooled 750. It’s a lot of bike for peanuts, but the parts situation is patchy. The Basics ‘Old’ Laverdas There are a few factors that affect the price (of the ‘older’ Laverdas): – condition – age – mileage – some recent service history The condition is by far the major contributor, since Laverda parts are fairly expensive (well, in comparison to the cost ...

Faster and Faster: Classic: The 1970s Laverda 750SF

Classic: The 1970s Laverda 750SF The 1970s Laverda 750SF. Looks remarkably cool even today. Laverda have made some pretty remarkable bikes over the years, our favourites being the V6 Bol d’Or racer. the Jota 1000 and the rather more recent 750 Formula S. Another Laverda that we think is pretty cool is the 750SF, which the company made from 1970-1976. In the mid-1960s, on the recommendation of his son, Francesco Laverda (the company’s founder) decided to build a bigger, more powerful motorcyclew, which would be capable of touring longer distances than was the norm in Europe. Yes, the new bike would be designed primarily for the American market… By the end of 1966, Laverda were ...

Lovin’ the Laverda

Lovin’ the Laverda

Lovin’ the Laverda: Beauty Meets Brute Force in Breganze Despite what some U.S. bike mags said back in the ’70s about Laverdas being finicky, they are actually tough as nails. This is no doubt due in part to their parent company’s production of farm machinery. Even today, 30-year-old Laverdas are still being flogged as daily drivers in Europe. Sling a set of saddlebags over the back of a 750 twin or a 1000 triple and call it a commuter/touring bike. One can also say the Euro riders place a premium on speed as opposed to the American’s emphasis on comfort. In other words, riding a Laverda takes a special person. a Laverda-isti. Personally, I love the bikes. Maybe it’s ...

1978 Laverda Jota 1200 America for Sale Posted on March 5, 2013 by tad As you may know, I love the Breganze-built machines from Laverda.  They push all of my vintage bike buttons: they’re rare, anti-social, and can hold their heads up high out riding on today’s roads.  Hopefully, prices for this forgotten marque [at least in America] will stay low long enough for me to find the time, cash, and space for another bike. For those of you not familiar with these hairy-chested, tangerine colored beasts: Laverda introduced its three-cylinder follow up to their durable twins in 1973 as a 1000cc machine.  It made about 80hp and could do a solid 130mph.  Slater Laverda in England saw potential ...

Laverda SF750 – CycleChaos

Laverda SF750 – CycleChaos

Laverda SF750 Laverda SF750 Test Motorcycle Sport 1973 The Laverda SF is without question one of the best motorcycles in the world. It is easy to fall into the trap and proclaim all Italian motorcycles as being good looking just because they are Italian; certainly they produce more than their fair share of hand­some motorcycles. (They also produce the occasional ugly duckling: the Moto Guzzi Ambassador and the latest 350cc MV Scrambler are two in this category.) Con­ceding, then, that the Italians know a thing or two about styling, we will content our­selves with the observation that the Laverda SF is so beautiful that it leaves one be­mused. The crowning glory of the machine is the ...

1972 Laverda SF

Sublime in Lime Story by Greg Williams. Photos by Amee Reehal Calgary motorcycle guru John Whitby has been at it again. Instead of fabricating a custom café racer or dual-purpose machine in as little as two months, this time he’s turned out a restored 1972 Laverda SF. Did it take Whitby two months? “Oh, no, no,” he laughs. “This took six or seven months from start to finish.” He found the neglected Laverda in a basement. Last registered in 1984, it looked as though it hadn’t run for years prior to that. “It had been apart for a very long time,” Whitby says. “The engine was out of the frame, and it was in pieces for whatever reason. The top end, including the cylinder ...

RealClassic.co.uk: Classic Motorcycle Road Test – Laverda SF750

Laverda SF750 In the 1970s Dave Minton first greeted the idea of a high-speed, high-mileage 750cc parallel twin with suspicion, but he was fast won over. Here’s how, and why. As a working motorcycle journalist, by 1971 I had become accustomed to abandoning test BSAs, Triumphs and Nortons by the roadside. The build quality of these final products of the British industry was, by this stage, simply appalling. So when Roger Slater offered me an SF 750 to take to the Laverda factory in Breganza and back, my enthusiasm for the trip was riddled with doubts about reliability. Roadside rescue services for Continental visitors then were unknown; one rode alone with one’s spanners. To reduce ...

Laverda RGS 1000 – Vintage Motorcycles Online

Laverda RGS 1000 Named after the Rome-based firm (RG Studios) who styled it, the RGS appeared in 1982. Following the rough-edged, 180-crank Jota the RGS was engineered to appeal to a wider demographic. Although a performance icon of the 70s, Laverda listened to the press and addressed the areas of the Jota that drew the most criticism. Low and narrow, the RGS featured a revised frame with rubber mounting for its even-firing, 120-degree crank engine. Other nice touches added to entice buyers included adjustable footpegs, an easy pull hydraulic clutch, a single/dual seat cowling and a automotive-type fuel fill on the fairing’s upper right corner. A luxury edition called the RGS Executive ...

1976 Laverda 3CL 1000 for Sale Posted on June 29, 2013 by tad Hey look!  Another Laverda!  Well, this one isn’t quite ready to ride, but I’ll forgive it, since it’s a manly brute of a 70′s musclebike.   When people think of three cylinder Laverdas, they often remember the brassy, tangerine bomber named after a Spanish dance.  But the Jota, while very collectable and very orange, isn’t as practical or civilized as the more pedestrian 3C. The Laverda 3C was the three cylinder follow up to the 750 SF twin featured recently.   First available in 1973, the bike displaced 981cc’s, made 80hp and ran the bike up to 130mph.  Until 1982, Laverda used a 180 degree crank in the motor, ...
