I seen one just like it red same seat the lot maybe the same bike ? parked on the street in Dagenham around 20 years ago and I cant ever remember seeing a more beautyfull looking bike on paper screen or in the metal . from what I have read about them they were the best parrale twin of the 70's with a real strong roller bearing crank . I rode an orange joto 120 years ago that was a beauty best sounding bike I ever rode but I think the 750 is way nicer in every way . so what do ya think of it ? I don't know about the price or availability of parts for them but I think rideing one trough the countryside on a nice sunny day would be a spiritual experience .:cool: its a lot of money but its a lot of bike . it would live in a shrine in my sitting room and get a few run outs under perfectly blue skys in the summer time . I think I would probably swap my 1340 Harley for it as its about 10 times cooler I would have to have a day long test ride first of course . oops I forgot the link to the actual bike hear it is lol . http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Laverda-750-SF2-/120995388706?pt=UK_Motorcycles&hash=item1c2be31d22

ya that's the one they are beautyfull the slater brothers in the uk had a lot to do with the jota being built they persuaded the factory to build them they were the fastest production bike in their day 140 mph I think it was . I seen an egli framed sfc750 on e bay a few years ago . if I was a lottery winner id have bought it and if my numbers come up I will buy the bike in the link above . I should give myself a fighing chance and buy a ticket lol . some of the green ones were called mirage 1200 cc . in the triples they say the later 180's cos of the crank being a bit different are the best of them not as pretty as the jota but a better bike and more affordable .

At a guess I'd say the Jota beat the quad in the judges' opinion...............:D

For many, many years the Jota was my dream machine. I rode a Jota for about 10 miles and scared myself with the sheer size, weight and power of the thing (I was riding an RD250 at the time) back in the late 70's and I also went down to Slaters the once to look at another bike which model I cannot remember. Slaters were foul, typical bolshie bike dealer of the time, probably because I was riding a japanese bike... ;)
