More than two years ago Gerhard from Graz surprised us with sensational news of owning a HAUER LAVERDA 1200. Up until then we always thought there had only ever been a single Laverda with this tubular space frame, built in Vienna.
Now we have been to Graz and have taken a closer look at Gerhard's rarity. His HAUER LAVERDA 1200 was registered in Vienna in June 1977. The base for this modification was a LAVERDA 1000 3C. The papers still show the bike with wire wheels. The first owner tuned the engine to 1200 cc and mainly used the bike for hill-climbs. One of Gerhard's friends bought it as a basket-case but didn't get around to rebuild it. For more than 35 years Gerhard has now been the owner of this HAUER LAVERDA. After a meticulous restoration he got it registered but onlz rode it for a few hundred kilometres. We were in awe about the exquisite condition of the bike, a true Austrian LAVERDA gem.
Dear Gerhard, next year at our LAVERDA-rally 2021 we want to see you with your HAUER LAVERDA.
