Nice looking bikes, I've chased a couple through ebay over the last few years. Always had a soft spot for them:thumbright:

I remember in the late 90's we had a dealer in Penzance selling these i test rode the 900 which had a stonking motor on it, i think it was the same one used in the Ducati 900ss. Also rode a few Laverda's down there but can't for the life of me remember the models

Aye, I just bought its twin this week!

A colleague of mine bought one brand new, ran it for a couple of yrs, run up 18k kms and put it into storage as he was forces and away for a spell. Long story short, 15yrs later,,,, I come along,,,, nice Elefant! I'll have that thank you very much!
Hope to have it home in the next week or so and start stripping for a rebuild due to the time in storage. Look forward to riding it, hope to see you on the road mate.

Nice one mate glad you had a fab trip I'll give Paul a bell this week to get the update & pics.

We go in July, now decided to include the Picos Mountains en route to the Bardenas Rerales not long to go.

Always fancied a Cagiva Elephant, when I sat on one at the Road race & Superbike Show at the Ally Pally in 1993, have pics of me sat on one.

A fab looking & cool bike but know nothing about them ie reliability etc.

Send me a pm with your number & I'll give you a bell.

Sorry Stubbsie, that's not me in ABR. Definitely one of the Ian's though.

Africajim: nice to see another one going back on the road. I have a PDF version of the official workshop manual for the E750 and a wiring diagram, if you need it.

A mine of Elefant info is available here: https://groups.google.com/group/elefantadventurebikes?hl=en


I may well be in touch regarding that manual! It's not home yet but I'll post up pics as soon as it's home.

I'll check out that link, thanks mate.
