    Oh yes, a matching pair of 1983 3900s, you beauties!! And eminently restorable. I reckon this might be the only machine that even fully restored my Enfield could holeshot :clap

    Another twin headlight RGA Jota with different fairing... this one I could've P/X for my own Formula Jota 120, but I had too many bikes at the time so went for cash instead. It went to a Laverda collector in Berwick on Tweed about ten years ago..

    The Sprint fairing used on the RGA Jota was produced in half or full fairing styles. Generally the half fairing style is preferred for aesthetic reasons and ease of working on the bike. I know of several full fairings that were cut down.

    The story behind that effort was as tough as the event. Maybe one of the Victoria Laverda Club blokes will post it from there mag.

    I rode behind this for a while on the Quail Ride and asked him to "Make that triple Howl ! " He said "Maybe once , I'm still running it in . "
    These shots were on the green at the show.

    3 things, he is serious with the dry break fuel connect on the tank. There are a couple more Laverdas in the background, was there a specific display. And lastly, that's some impressive grass there parked on. BTW that looks like Redaxs carby kit, he uses those air filters. That's what's on my 3C.
