This is my first official post on Classic Sport Bikes For Sale and it will serve as a test to get the blog put together. The listing for this Laverda is real though, so feel free to check it out!
quote from seller’s listing:
This vintage racing bike originates from Breganze, Italy and I have owned it since 1974. I am the original owner and have the original clear Ohio title.
All serial numbers match. It runs on 101 octane LEADED fuel. This machine is in EXCELLENT condition.
It is a 750 twin road racer. Dual disc brakes in the front and single disc in the rear.
There were only 549 of these made over a 6-year period and only 222 in 1974.
It was completely restored in 2006. It presently has 8213 total miles and 243 since the restoration.
It has been parked in my heated & A/C garage for 20 years.
This restoration took a year and a half and we started with the bare frame.
The frame and 14 misc. parts were powder coated. Fiberglass fuel cell was coated on the inside to protect it from the new gasoline.
It has the original gel coat on the outside w/new seals in the petcocks. Tailpiece and fearing have been repainted.
Installed new carbon fiber seat cover.
Updated to electronic ignition. Complete lapped in valve job. (original valves) Rebuilt both Dellorto carburetors.
Rims were made by Borrani, who make rims for Alfa Romeo, Maserati, and Ferrari.
New polished stainless steel spokes.

All new wheel and fork bearings.
New handle grips, and control cables.

I love the look of this motorcycle. Great color, cool logos, and a stunning restoration!
