Title: Found a lovely 3c
Post by: Jo on May 26, 2018, 17:37
Hi there,
I’d introduced myself some time ago:
http://www.laverdaforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,97384.msg396350.html#msg396350 (http://www.laverdaforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,97384.msg396350.html#msg396350)


Well, and now I do own a Laverda again! Eventually I have found what I was looking for, a lovely 1000 3c from 1974:

Even she is pretty there's still a lot to be done - of which more later …


Cheers
Jo

Thanks for your comments! This 3c was announced by Volki last December:

We found an "Entente Cordiale" today and with this I'm in the position to launch the news. VIN is 1907 and documents tell Aug 74 as registration date (Italy).

A lot was done on ignition (latest Witt DMC/32) and wiring harness, but wrt carbs there is still a way to go.
My current idea is to change them to Mikunis straight away ...

And yes, I'm grinning from ear to ear!

Lovely bike and nicely composed photos Jo. You seem to have a good eye for photography, not to mention a nice spot to take photos.
The front-on photo of the bike isn't aligned with the road though. Everyone is a critic eh? :D

Hi Rettings,

Of course I would like to keep it!
:D

Hi Cam,
well spotted – I did already re-position the bike one time – but was too lazy for another correction …

... woooow Jo, great bike! The 1000 3C is the essence of LAVERDA triples. I would love to own and ride a non oilcooler or a drumbrake triple.

Big started in 1968.

@Maurice: Our triples are close together than - maybe they met in the factory!

@Paul:  Of course, as you know I started on a twin - I visited an old friend last weekend - same place, different time:

Ciao, Gert

Gert,
Your Sulzbacher triples would also appeal very much to me. I just tried to search for them
here in the forum. Pity that no pictures are available anymore due to the unreliability of
imageshack, photobucket and the like …

Is there any actual link to pictures showing your bikes, in particular the Sulzbachers?

Cheers
Jo

Two beauty's Gert ....... perfect balance of form.

Who made the exhaust for the orange bike? Also ..... who makes the fairing? The fairing is a nice balance ...... between a Laverda and a Ducati fairing ...... best of both.

Hi Jim,
the "orange" bike is in fact a red bike - both 1200SC highest Sulzbacher tuning spec. Fairing, downpipes with 45mm diameter and big bore collector are special Sulzbacher parts, silencers on the red bike are standard Laverda, on the white it is a Sulzbacher 3-1 replica exhaust.

Gert.....or anyone else from that part of Europe....i was trying to recall the name of the Laverda shop or nearby town somewhere in Switzerland where i got my 1000 SFC serviced in 1986. All I recall was it was Laverda dealership in a rural area, farming country. They may have sold other brands as well but it was a small shop out in the country.  The owner was a farmer as well I think who drive a Mercedes.  No one spoke english other than the owner. But i recall the shop manager or mechanic who was impressed with the  sound of the SFC which had the factory 3 into 1 pipe and the open bellmouths. He mimiced the sound with a loud roar and smiled. Then pointed to a stock Laverda and made a muted put put sound and shook his head in disgust. They did  a great job tuning the Bike and we continued our tour of Europe.

The Infamous Nieland :o :o  :o bodger and conman >:(
He had his premises in Bavaria.

Switzerland reminds me of Möri, good reputation.

Hi Gert
Thank you for the information. I see the bike is red now when I use my laptop. It looks orange on my ipad. I have not seen stock exhaust with the ends cut open. Must be quite loud.
Is it possible to purchase the fairing? I like that shape very much.
cheers
Jim

Hi Jim, ends cut open??? No - see my pic!
Boba has a mould for the Sulzbacher fairing, but he is not able to work at the moment. I could search my shed also, but shipping to Canada could be a pain ...

As I accidentally just have other duties (water damage in my house) I’m yet not sure when I find the time to install the bits though …
