Laverda museum collection up for sale

1 of 12

An entire museum collection of 81 Laverdas from the Laverda Netherlands museum is up for sale, including prototypes and race bikes. 

Included in the collection, which spans the entire history of the North Italian marque from 1950-2000, is one of the first ever production Laverda 75 Turismos built in 1950 and Massimo Laverda's personal 1951 75 Turismo.


Among the more special items in the collection is a 1000 3C Prototipo that was shown at the Milan Show in 1971 and is estimated to be worth €45,000 (£38,546). That's not the most expensive item in the collection, though. That honour goes to one of three remaining 1975 ex-Brettoni, Gallina, Fougeray and Lucchinelli 1000 spaceframe endurance racers, worth an estimated €135,000 (£115,640).

Memorabilia including manuals, sales brochures, photographs, posters and even engine cutaways are also included in the sale. 

A full list of the bikes included in the sale can be found at Via Thema.
