This is not good... another 2 years and no more progress. I thought about selling the bike a while ago but i need to get it finished, ride it and enjoy it. It's pretty much all my own work that has got it this far.

Watch this space.

This thread started in early 2010! Does Stuart get a prize for the longest rebuild ever? :lol:
I think he probably does! Aim for the club meet end of August next year ;)

Nah, the longest rebuilds are still in bits. One long time forum member told me he had a Canam in bits which he stored in his loft- that was about 10 years ago, it's probably still there

Life does get in the way sometimes

You could always bring it to us to finish Stuart - it wouldn't be the first project we have had to finish off for folk with limited spare time on their hands..

Being camouflaged it wasn't too easy to find but there she was tucked away in the garage..

Getting the Laverda recommissioned and back on the road is the first task, free tax and no mot means minimum cost involved.

At least you've got your priorities right. Well done.
