This is the third of a series of interviews with Paul Jayson, The Motorcycle Broker where we look at classic motorcycle investments. In terms of automotive investing classic bikes make an awful lot of sense – they are relatively easy to work on, take up very little space and like classic cars and other vehicles, they can offer significant, and sometimes spectacular, tax free investment returns.
Each week we will be looking at some of the most iconic and best performing classic motorcycles of the past 20 years. In our third interview we look at the famous Italian marque Laverda, and discuss the legendary Jota 1000 and the rare and exclusive SFC750. We also discuss some of the pitfalls of Laverda ownership, in particular the sourcing of an investment grade example of the Jota, and a common issue with neglected engines.
