Liam Hughes’ Laverda 650 For­mula

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - FEEDBACK -

This bike had been with its pre­vi­ous own for over 20 years and only had 000(ish) kilo­me­tres on it. t had in­voices for recom­mis­sion­ing to­talling near 2000 mak­ing the pur­chase price of 1800 a bar­gain in my opin­ion, es­pe­cially for a bike that is one of only 200 made in the world! un­earthed the bike on (of all places) ace­book mar­ket­place and swiftly de­cided it was for me, de­spite all the hor­ror sto­ries about the so called Zanë Laverda' (that means the late twins, made there be­tween 1992-2000). ve done 500km or so and the only prob­lem ve had is with a cold-start prob­lem due to a faulty tem­per­a­ture sen­sor, which was re­placed with a new one from an Alfa Romeo. Other than this had the wheels pow­der-coated orange and stuck some fresh rub­ber on it. or me if you can put up with the re­li­a­bil­ity roulette then these bikes are stun­ning and have a huge amount of high-level com­po­nents, such as Brembo brakes, WP sus­pen­sion, Ter­mignoni cans and March­esini wheels to name just a few.
