  4. + it's based on a Laverda Jota 3 cylinder engine from the 70's so it has all the unreliability of a 70's Italian motorcycle as well.

    Pass.

  6. Ever since getting into sidecars between one and two people per week email me a photo of that thing! No thanks!

    But how about this...real boat! With motor! All the advantages possessed by neither a solo or a car! :grin:

    But if we're talking cool sidecars, the more I think about it, the more this is the go...

  9. I was told there was a British company back in the day which actually manufactured as a standard item a sidecar which doubled as a boat! The fellow (a sidecarist nut) mentioned the name but I forget.

    Imagine that, a chassis designed to take any desert sand, gravel or mud, and a bike with the right set-up and a massive fuel tank, with the boat in which you stored fuel, camping and fishing gear, etc; and then, upon reaching water, you went boating!

  13. The ONLY problem with Laverdas was the first generation Bosh EI,fit an easily available modern EI,there are half a dozen made now and there as reliable as there age and mileage allow,mine did 3000ks around the Snowys last year in 4 days at not to be mentioned speeds with Zero dramas in company with 8 other Laverdas.Not to bad for a 34 year old 70s Italian sports bike
