Description

This is a rare opportunity to buy a Slaters Laverda 1980. with matching  numbers Reg MMG 672W    
Chassis LAV 1000/3cl 12571 OM  Engine7329   
Previously reregistered on Swiss Plates . it has been unused for many years. it is a timewarp 80s Muscle bike in Black deep gloss paint in fantastic condition.
Fully re commissioned when I purchased it twenty years ago. it had a complete engine rebuild with new pistons and full top end rebuild in 1999 and nominal miles since.
This was a true road rocket and ran incredibly well.  The bike could be delivered at cost. or can be sent to Victory Motorcycles In Camden London and come ready for collection with a new Mot and ready to take off on.
For this service. you will have to view the bike and pay a deposit .
 Roger Slater had initially built the LAVERDA Jota conceiving it as a UK-only model based around the Laverda 3C.  LAVERDAwere known to build big and fast bikes and the Jota was considered by many to be the 'World's First Superbike'.  
The Laverda Jota was. for a brief but golden spell in the late 70s. the most powerful and fastest production motorcycle that money could buy. It was rare. expensive. exotic and drop-dead gorgeous.
Besides being fast. it also handled well thanks to Marzocchi suspension and Brembo brakes. The bike had higher compression pistons. beefier cams and less restrictive (read ‘loud') exhausts. It exceeded speed of over 145 mph.

The first motor has bore for race 75x74 milimeter and the compression ratio was 9:1. the gears were increased to straight teeth and frontal grafts 5 speed. ignition was electronic Bosch with increased pick-up.
The plan of the new three cylinders met initially with some difficulty. The motor had to resume the bicylindrical one aesthetically. with the cooling fins a lot drawn near. but they gave rise of the initial problems.
The positioning of the cranks with those lateral ones were pushed to 360° and that one in center to 180°. In this way the vibrations are reduced and that made the drainage of Laverda 1000 as a first exemplary with the exhausts draining of 3 in 1. But the whims of the ignition cost Laverda a series of callbacks from the initial customers. The bike remained more or less unchanged until 1979 when. in anticipation of new European noise legislation. the factory changed both main bearing and cylinder head specifications. leading to a rash of mechanical failures which blighted the 1979 season bikes. Sorted for 1980. and gaining better electrics and a hydraulic clutch. the bike was beginning to show its age against the new generation of DOHC Japanese superbikes in both power and feel. the raw delivery of the big triple feeling rough against the smoother oriental fours. For the 1982 season Laverda redesigned the crankshaft for a 120-degree firing angle. changed from the original 180-degree set-up. The 120 Jotas were much smoother and more civilised. but many owners feel the original 180 motor with its raw. brutal power delivery was closer to the spirit of the real thing.  Laverda also came out with a bigger specification later with the 1200 cc(pic below) with improved ergonomics.
