Frame no. LAU750F10491
Launched in 1968, Laverda's new motor was a controversial design, appearing to have been closely based on Honda's 305 twin, albeit enlarged to 650cc. After fewer than 100 had been made, the engine was taken out to 750cc and a team of 650 and 750 Laverdas duly walked away with the 1968 Giro d'Italia road race. The first production 750 GT touring model spawned the 750 SF sportster in 1971. Introduced at the same time, the 750 SFC (for "competizione") was a thinly disguised racer that soon came to dominate endurance contests of the day. This example, finished in the factory's orange racing livery, has a headlight, taillight and turnsignals integrated into the handlebar ends.
- Please note that the correct frame number for this motorcycle is LAV750F10491, and its engine number is 7503131.
