This is an original unrestored Laverda Jota 180 from 1980.
It still has the original Slaters import sticker hidden on the bike.
It also comes with a letter of confirmation of originality from Roger Slater himself.
Paintwork is immaculate.
Non Original parts are braided hoses and Koni shocks, period modifications.
It still has the original clutch.
Just had a new battery and set of plugs fitted.
Starts on the button, Instruction sheet included.
I have just had the carbs off, ultrasonically cleaned, new gaskets, O rings and Viton tipped float needle valves fitted. I also found that one of the float valve holders and float were incorrect size. Looks Like they had been from new? So these are now correct size, new seat fitted. (old seat was stamped correctly 250 but was undersize??)
Comes with a large history folder, including MOTs, Tax discs and list of previous owners. Also correspondence from previous owners.
This bike was previously owned by Ace Tester himself Paul Miles, who rode and wrote about it for Real Classic magazine. Issue 97 May 2012, a copy of which is included in the history file.
Has a spare clutch cable.
Also a spare throttle cable.
Currently fitted with an optimate battery charging cable.
Comes with an original rare toolkit.
Now the not so good bits. It is unrestored afterall.
There is a small ding in the LH exhaust.
A couple of small parted seams on the seat cover. Mentioned in the article in the magazine.
The grab rail is showing patina!
Tyres F & R Metzeler.
Not MOT’d at present. I can MOT it for the new owner, once payment (deposit) has been received, if required?
Bank Transfer or Cash on collection.
Can possibly deliver, (I have a van) dependent upon distance and agreed remuneration first.
