In 1973, our guys were r acing Z900 Kawasakis. A 20 year old kid from Sydney brought a brand new Laverda 750SFC to phillip Island and beat all the good guys with it. Completely standard, except on methanol fuel ! I was offered one about ten years ago, I'm so sorry I did not buy it.

Laverdas are good things. My Seeley was originally built with a Laverda 750 motor. I tried to get it when I got the frame, but it had become out of reach. I raced against the Seeley Laverda once , it was a bit too slow. it had a restrictive two into one pipe which held it back, even though it had the SFC cam.
I have got ambitions of racing against this thing ::
i've put cams and RS flat slides in each - the RGS sprint has forcella forks (rare as hens teeth),light weight mags, Jota pistons, and Teleflex adjustable bars, upgraded the brakes, and put custom Works shocks on it, rides amazing - + they really gobble up the miles - as much as i love my commando these are special bikes too -
