A time warp

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I’m a reader of Old Bike and en­joy the ar­ti­cles and the magazine in gen­eral. I’ve had many clas­sic bikes and re­cently re­stored a match­ing num­bers Se­ries B Black Shadow, but I’ve just ac­quired a bike that I think is ex­cep­tional for its age and orig­i­nal­ity. It’s a one-owner 74 Laverda 1000C with only 9,500 miles on the clock! The paint is orig­i­nal and I doubt it’s ever had any parts re­placed. When I bought it, the bike hadn’t been started in 5 years and was last reg­is­tered in 1989. I took about a week of pol­ish­ing and tweak­ing to bring it up to scratch. For its age it is in ex­cep­tional con­di­tion. I do think it would war­rant a men­tion in Old Bike Aus­trala­sia or even an ar­ti­cle to show that there are still amaz­ing bikes out there.

Chris Wil­liams’ to­tally orig­i­nal and un­re­stored 1000C.
