Background to the Model  and thoughts excerpts from a contemporary road test

No doubt that the 1000 Laverda is one of the bike which has the strongest character!

First comes its physical and aesthetical aspect, a very big and beautiful engine, very clean design, and a general look which gives a very expressive bike in spite of what is ultimately a very elegant picture.

The character of the engine too, above all in 180° version, is made of a strong and brutal attitude! Power and torque, deep sound, brutality, everything contributes to make a 1000 Laverda road test an unforgettable experience, even if we have tested so many bikes before. No doubt that Laverda could have civilized this bike a bit, but this is this wild character which finally makes of it a priceless experience.

There is no one-day 1000 Laverda tester: Until you ride it, you are doubtful, even critical versus a monster that you can't really understand. But since you test it, you just want it for ever!

The 1000 Laverda has three cylinders of 980,76 cm3, offering specs of a multicylinder (vivacity, high revs,...) and in the same time also the strong character of a big unitary cubic capacity engine (torque, deep sound, ...).

There were two crankshaft timings: The first one, from 1973 to 1981, has two external pistons at TDC while central one is down, hence the nick name of "180°". This timing was initially used to avoid excessive side pressure onto the crank bearings, a well known problem on any 120° engine.

Thus the only engine ever built with a 180° timing was created, resulting in a special character:

Everything is different compared to any marketed engine: The engine is brutal, the sound and feeling are unique, vibes can be present... Add to that a...perfectible Bosch electronic ignition (which did no favours for Laverda in its inquiries for the best products available at that time...), accentuating the brutality of the beast, and you are riding a sort of monster, all the pleasure laying to tame it... if you can...this engine continues to delight the enthusiasts who still haven't found its equal on the market.

This Machine in particular:

Laverda ‘s first and arguably the best  of the breed fitted with Borrani Mag wire wheels ,

 

According to the Laverdamania register ,the frame/engine numbers relate to the machine being Manufactured in 1974 and first registered for the road in 1976 .has covered 26579 miles up until she was taken off the road in 1987,( the tax disc is still on the bike) this was through the failure of the Achilles  heel  “ the bosch hz ignition amplifier,this system has now been superseded  with far  superior aftermarket units from the likes of Witt

Fitted with JOTA stainless steel silencers

As you can see from the photographs,the bike is in very good condition ,the frame ,shock absorbers ,front forks, Borrrani,wires ,tyres,Engine /Gearbox unit, caburettors  and airbox, tank,side panels, Exhaust headers and silencers lighting  all excellent

Well since bringing her out of storage,  the electrical system has been  looked over ,new battery fitted ,ignition barrel ,flexible brake hoses  ,Master cylinder overhaul,rear brake light switch,  centre stand ,FRC Adjustable rear shock absorbers,fuel taps etc.

What is there to do for re commissioning ?

On cranking the engine over there was  pulses from the stata  showing that the input was happening up to the CDI Unit but there was no spark from the coils this we think was the unit  itself ,I managed to acquire a second-hand one which  on fitting ,the bike fired up! Sounding absolutely wonderful , Great" I thought problem solved ! then after moving her and  coming back in a week or so time ,I  went to start her but to no avail ,on further inspection I found that the second-hand unit was only producing a spark on one coil , ( both amplifiers and coils have been removed but are boxed up ready to go with the bike)

So it is my opinion  what is needed to get the bike on the road and up to mot  standard , the cdi system need upgrading, front calipers want overhauling  (rear drum is excellent ) The chain and sprocket  look ok, the tyres ( Avons) whilst  both have been on the bike since she came off the road in 87,they look like new and as she has been stored off the ground the tyres have not been stressed, so could be fine .

So as far as I can see that is it!

Conclusion:

This model is much sought after  and commanding excellent prices  their  investment and classic status is assured.

With a little  work this could be a superb example of the breed and at No” Reserve it is the ideal opportunity to acquire!

Many Thanks for looking and all the very best of look with your bid!

Regards

Dave

Please note: the Motor Cycle is being sold as an on-going project and at present not sold in a roadworthy condition if you have any doubt about  of these facts kindly refrain from placing a bid on the vehicle . 

 The vehicle  is as usual being sold with “No” Reserve !

Please note, The description of the vehicle is from my eyes and my opinion, you are warmly encouraged to view and inspect  prior to bidding yourself , I will do my utmost to accommodate you. But once the auction has finished and if you are the winning bidder, you will be expected to conclude the transaction after being given this opportunity to inspect before the auction concludes. Please do not hesitate to call on: 07970383375 to arrange a viewing. 

If the winning bidder is not UK Mainland based, it would be possible to deliver the motorcycle to a embarkation destination of their choice, once payment is received and the appropriate delivery tariffs have been met, it would be up to the winning bidder to organise the necessary on-going transportation and paperwork.. 

Please note! With two previous bidders who have had successful bids on other classics I have sold and have been European mainland based, they did not complete the sale quoting, they did not realise the logistics for transportation to the European mainland

 

Please, Please, Please! 

If you are based on the European Mainland and you are going to bid on the vehicle, please make sure you have the means to transport to the European mainland, also please make sure before you bid, that if you intend to road use the vehicle it can be registered in your country.

Now for the boring bits, I only sell good quality classic cars and describe the cars as accurately as I can and sell with honesty and integrity (please read my feedback) I have had on now 13! Occasions individuals being the successful bidders on cars and not fulfilling the auction terms so wasting my time and stopping a genuine person getting the car, 

I am also sad to say had an individual who decided after winning the car thinking he could try and force me to sell the car for less intimating placing negative feedback! 

 I would be grateful if you could call Me on: 07970383375 or email before you bid to confirm your intentions are bona fide . 

Many thanks for your understanding. 

Dave. 

Jazz Blog;

What a British Grand Prix at Sliverstone! Amazing performances and  some great car control ,a lot of this being down to the farcical situation over the tyres being supplied by Pirelli,I do believe that the one make provider is detrimental  to F1,if there was a competitor they would, I am sure be providing a better carcass ! whilst of course’ some cars and drivers  are  harder on tyres than others  ,you can’t have it that races are being lost because a component  is failing right across all teams spoiling the racing and posing an unacceptable danger!
