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

Incredible pics, Jo. That bike is amazing! Are you going to keep it or?

Hi Rettings,
what else should one do after a long search ..?  (dunno) ;D
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!
 ;D

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



Thank you all!
Jo

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
