And here's the kicker about Laverda's - Wolfgang Haerter in Nakusp, British Columbia - Columbia Car and Cycle - has almost everything (and I mean everything you can imagine or ever need) in stock! I am just blown away but what Wolfgang can get for a Laverda.

Prices on parts are generally less than that for a Guzzi, I pay in CDN dollars, the parts come to me in days by Canada Post and Wolfgang is a wonderful source of advice and information.

I think I need to find a spoke wheeled 3C Laverda project!

I've heard the same thing about Wolfgang from a number of different people, so it definitely appears that he is "the man" for Laverda.  I heard a nasty rumor that he might be retiring, though?  Hope not for the sake of Laverda owners!

I've been through Nakusp several times, but that was before I had heard of Wolfgang.  Will have to try to stop in next time I am out that way. 

 :1: on the 3C!

Cheers,
Shaun

Apparently Wolfgang and his wife are going to scale back to a couple days a week.
Wolfgang's son Chris is running the shop but the parts business will run a wee bit slower.
I sure hope he continues with the business for many years to come.

Glad to be of help!

My son added some red stripes to the fairing using vinyl rather than paint. A very good match as well.

Absolutely fantastic re-build.
Just started reading tonight & will now have to revisit each night to get through such an informative thread - a real credit to you Jim.
Picked up so many tips, which at my age I should have used long ago! Bearing drifts - heard of patience/dogged determination?!
I have just started converting a 3000mile Centauro to a (Daytauro)?, so at least all the bits are new & if I can mod the existing e.g rear subframe then I save a lot of work (even if I already purchased said 1100 subframe, blasted, Hot zinc metal sprayed & enamel painted it!)
Did you consider building up by metalspray fot your discs & machining back? I have previously had my 1100 forks machined then S.S. metal sprayed & machined - cheaper than re chroming & although not so shiny (slightly dull) they will also resist any possible rusting.
Again FANTASTIC work & informative unselfish know how shared with us all  :bow:

Thanks Bill, I have never heard of metal spray ? Sounds like a great idea, I have a half dozen Brembo discs that are too worn to machine.

I will have to look into the process, I wonder if anyone local to me does this. I am in the heart of the Canadian oil service industry, there is probably someone offering this.

Cheers

Jim
