1975 Laverda 750 SF2

The Laverda 750 SF is a sport touring motorcycle. It has a twin four-stroke motor with 60 HP, and a 5-speed gearbox. This beautiful orange Laverda belongs to Dan Reichel and Theresa Worsch. The Laverda Motorcycle company, known as Moto Laverda S.A.S, was started in 1949 by Francesco Laverda. The SF stands for Super Freni or Super Brakes. 1971 was the first year of the consumer version of the SF.

They bought the motorcycle in very good condition. Ziggy has been the go-to man on servicing this machine, including replacing the battery to removing and re-installing gauges, replacing horns, fixing wiring, fabricating missing pieces, polishing the engine cases and fork legs, installing a new front fender and seat, and other mechanical needs. Notice the different seats in the photos below. Top row were taken before the seat change.
