Here is another trivia for you.
It is a rare bike with strange racing history. What is it?

Looks to have some BMW inspired designs to it. If someone had a gun to my head and made me guess, that's what I'd say. But I'm sure I'm WAY off.

Andy you re right again, it's the Laverda V6 1000cc Endurance (not Enduro :p)
The picture shows the bike in restored condition.
It was raced once, and without great success, as the rear diferential gave trouble during the 78 Lemans 24 hours race.

Here is another picture showing the bike naked and in race trim.

Hi Aris,

When I first saw that bike I knew it must be a Laverda. The color and style just yells Laverda. When I first saw the un-restored bike (second picture) I thought it looks very similar, but it had exposed rear shocks and didn't have a tail light. But I just kept looking for a V6 Laverda until I found it. So whats the deal with the shocks on the restored bike??

Thanks for a fun trivia Aris... too bad it only took 3 minutes to find.
