There's an overpriced (IMO) 3C on ebay right now. Starting bid of $6999.99.I decided that I really didn't want a triple after following this thread for a while. Maybe a 750. https://www.advrider.com/f/threads/workshop-stories.1529843/
I contacted the eBay seller this morning to ask a few basic questions like whether he had a title in his name, did the crank turn freely, etc. so I could decide whether to drive the 300 miles to look at it. He was so unfriendly that I just took the bike out of consideration. I couldn’t see climbing into bed for the next year or so with a bike with bad karma. The histories of these bikes and our connections with their owners and their pasts are so important. It’s too bad. It was a nice looking motorcycle in just the condition I like to start with.
If you want to learn about all things Laverda and find the source for every NOS or reproduction part imaginable then you need to contact Wolfgang Haerter at Columbia Car and Cycle in Nakusp British Columbia, Canada. I have been to Wolfgang’s amazing warehouse of Laverda parts (as well as Dellorto, CEV, Brembo, KONI etc) several times. Wolfgang is an expert mechanic who spent a lifetime working on Laverda and can diagnose anything on the machines. I sent my 1973 Laverda SF1 to him to tune a couple years ago and he transformed the bike. He also knows just about every Laverda for sale and it’s history. Wolfgang ships parts around the world and has many contacts in Europe where he sources specific hard to find parts. Email. firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks Jim. I think that will come in handy.

Hey Ben, 7k for that heap on ebay makes Wendel's 3C sound reasonably priced. The Laverda forum is a good group. Not wildguzzi but then nothing comes close.
I bought a triple today from forum member Travlr (Mike) near Phoenix. It is a '77 Jota partially finished and in parts. Once I get it home I will post more. I am so excited. Thanks so much to Mike for reaching out to me and offering the bike for sale. More to follow.
Congrats Ben! Can't wait to hear more.
From an old issue of Classic Bike. -Stretch
It would make a great poster for my office.
I’ll toss a triple in
Congrats Mike ! Still have the zephyr?
