LAVERDA 1000 3C - 1974

This bike came on the market in 1972, although it was presented at the Milan Show in 1969. The first models were equipped with front and rear drum brakes ! Fortunately for the 1974 model, a front Brembo double disc replaced the drum. One of the main characteristics of this bike were the 180 spaced crankpins, thus giving him a very particular sonority. This engine was particularly pleasant. One could not say the same for the rear suspensions. Unpleasant vibrations were also omnipresent.
