    That orange LAVERDA at the Quail event appears to have Red's transmission cover, which apparently resolves the problem with the hydraulic clutch release mechanism. All it takes is money....

    I was besotted with Laverda when I was a teenager
    Started saving my money when I was 16
    Managed to buy a 1975 750 SF 2.. when I was 19
    Had it all trough my university days...rode it just about every day.
    Took it apart so many times I could do it in my sleep....

    Then started working for a big Japanese manufacturer, and sold the Lav

    Now , 43 years later, this one comes up, and I had to have it.
    Needs stripping down , and a fair bit of work, because it has been sitting for 20 years.
    But I think it's worth it

    I recently purchased Jota no. 5136, the middle one of the first batch of three built by Slaters and exported to Lance Weil. Fully restored by Scott Potter.

    Ride safely,

    Many Laverdas in Classic Racing events and motorcycle shows here in Europe. Some are good, some are better, and some are gems.

    P12XX Laverda, made by frenchman Jean-Louis Olive. Because of some reason, I never completely liked that bike ... maybe because of Suzuki wheels, wavy discs, out-of-time-and-place exhaust or this battery box under the seat. Never mind ... enjoy three more pictures of this bike from motorcycle show in Verona (Italy), back in 2017.

    As I said earlier, it was for sale but the last I heard that didnt happen for personal stuff. So maybe it's still available for those with deep pockets.
