Today's bike of the day is this Laverda Diamante 668.
"I have owned this bike since 1990 and I am only the second owner since new. It has had a spoilt life with me and I love it but my advancing years mean that I hardly ever use it and it is too good not to be ridden. I have had the head rebuilt less than 500 miles ago, with quality parts so that it is better than new and it shows! Other improvements have been made including upgrading the regulator and battery so no electrical gremlins. I have a load of spares including, clutch and gearbox, engine cases and so on which I will throw in. I have never had an issue getting any parts and can give the details of my sources to the lucky buyer!
"I also have a complete 4k kms engine unit that will fit straight in if it was ever needed for sale with the bike or separately for £500. I will put a new 12 month MOT on it when the sale is agreed - it has never failed an MOT! Mileage is showing as 25,832 but 7,500 of these are actually kilometres before I fitted the miles convertor. So real mileage is 22,992. As usual, not test rides without the cash in my hand but happy to demonstrate that this is a great bike for the money. As I write this I am wondering what I am doing selling it!"
It sounds like the engine and electrics have been sorted on the neat-looking parallel twin, and it's certainly something different if that's what you like.
