Quality restoration of unique and desirable GT model Laverda.  Excellent cosmetics and mechanicals.  Rare and interesting bike, very enjoyable to ride.

These motorcycles are some of the most reliable classic bikes you can buy, especially for classic Italian bikes. .. reasonably fast and extremely fun. 

Handling to match that contributes to its fun character... very decent brakes.

Sounds fantastic.  Needs nothing. No squeaks no leaks. 

A very fine example of a unique Italian sports bike in excellent condition … a great addition to any serious collection and a real experience to ride.

ABOUT THE LAVERDA 750 series

Introduced in 1968, the Laverda 750 had a very successful racing career and was regarded as a premium sport bike in Europe. Originally imported to the US only branded as American Eagle bikes, Laverda took over US distribution in 1970, but very few of these bikes were ever sold here.  

The bikes carried the finest components available at the time, from Pankl con-rods, Ceriani suspension, Mondial pistons, to Bosch electrical parts and a reliable Japanese Nippon-Denso starter, thus eliminating the one problem plaguing nearly all contemporary British and Italian motorcycles at the time: their electrical unreliability. 

The parallel twin cylinder engine, based on Honda engineering, featured no less than five main bearings (four crankcase bearings and a needle-roller outrigger bearing in the primary chaincase cover), a duplex cam chain, and a starter motor easily twice as powerful as needed.  Properly maintained the Laverda 750 is considered to be a very solid and dependable bike.  The tubular frame from which the motor is suspended is very robust and contributes to very steady, stable handling and minimal vibration for a parallel twin.
