Big congratulations on getting the licenseplates for it! That is a big milestone to get past that. Sorry to hear youre selling it, but that is the way it is with the hobby. I dont know if I could restore it so nicely and sell it afterwards. Maybe it helps having too many bikes in the shop :grin:

Very sorry to hear about the damage to your Laverda. Hope those builders got told off well!

Looking very much forward to follow your next restoration! Which bike is in the pipeline? Benelli or perhaps a Bimota? How about going Spanish and going for a Bultaco or Montesa? ;)

Congrats on the sale. Having too many bikes is indeed a problem, and hard to maintain even the little annual things, batteries, fluids, it can get out of control. Bummer on the Laverda being knocked over like that  :violent1:

I am waiting on engine machine work to finish my 1978 Moto Morini 500, it needed a crank grind, big end shells, valve guides and valves, parts were on back order from NLM but should arrive this week. I am going to get back onto  my 74 Benelli 9650 Tornado after the Morini. I don't like to sit still .....

Cheers
