Post Listing Update: This SFC did not get any interest at the BIN of $58,000.
One of the most famous motorcycles to ever come out of Italy, the Laverda SFC was a half-faired beauty built for competition. SFC stood for Super Freni Competizione, or “Super Brakes Competition.” The brakes weren’t the only thing that were super – the engine got bigger valves and 36mm Amal carbs to boost power up to 75 horsepower, which yielded a top speed of about 135 miles per hour.
Each engine was dyno tested to ensure at least 70 horsepower was produced, and the frames were strengthened compared to the SF model. Want to know more about why this bike has become such a legend? Check out this article from Motorcycle Classics. Impressively, that article is about this exact bike (VIN: 17160).
This bike is offered up by Peter Boggia of Moto Borgotaro – I love featuring his bikes but he no longer puts asking prices on his site so I’ve stayed away from it as of late. Now that it’s on eBay, we can see what the asking price is for this SFC. It’s been with the current owner for a decade – he had it rebuilt from the frame up by Scott Potter, which included a new steel fuel tank that was color-matched and upgraded rear shocks. Because the bike has been sitting for a while, Peter “decided to give her a once over and clean and replace the jets, set the points. After putting in some fresh fuel, this BEAST roared back to life.”
