c.1980 Laverda LZ125
Frame no. LAV.125LZ1 134
Engine no. 9883187
In the late 1970s, Laverda turned to outside suppliers for engines to power its enduro and lightweight roadster ranges, choosing Husqvarna for the former and Zündapp for the latter. Company boss Massimo Laverda had visited Zündapp's Munich factory in mid-1978, and the first Laverdas to be powered by the German firm's excellent two-stroke engines began leaving the Breganze factory before the year's end. These were the LZ125 and LZ175, both of which were powered by water-cooled single-cylinder engines and shared essentially the same set of cycle parts. Built up to 1983, these Zündapp-powered lightweights were an immense commercial success for Laverda, with some 20,000 of the smaller model sold. Displaying a total of 19,104km (11,871 miles) on the odometer, this apparently complete LZ125 is offered for restoration. There are no documents with this Lot.
