1970 laverda 750S – restored classic Italian sports machine This 1970 Laverda 750 S is a special model of the legendary Laverda 750 twin, Laverda’s answer to the four cylinder Honda 750 and other Japanese sport bikes of the late 1960’s. Introduced in 1968, the Laverda 750 had a very successful racing career and was regarded as a premium sport bike in Europe. Originally imported to the US only branded as American Eagle bikes, Laverda took over US distribution in 1970, but few of these bikes were ever sold here and nice ones are rare indeed.
All import paperwork in order, current California title and registration. Excellent paint, polished alloy, nice chrome and all details tidy. Shows very well, rides beautifully, no issues, no problems, a very nice example of the type in all regards.
The parallel twin cylinder engine, based on Honda engineering, featured no less than five main bearings (four crankcase bearings and a needle-roller outrigger bearing in the primary chaincase cover), a duplex cam chain, and a starter motor easily twice as powerful as needed. Properly maintained the Laverda 750 is considered to be a very solid and dependable bike. The tubular frame from which the motor is suspended is very robust and contributes to very steady, stable handling and minimal vibration for a parallel twin.
