Not a Jota – 1977 Laverda Jarama 1000 3CL

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

In America, Laverda offered the 3CL (and the up-spec Jota), but they renamed the former the Jarama in 1978 after the racetrack in Spain. It didn’t sell particularly well in the United States, so some dealers converted the base Jaramas to Jotas (and some people call these “Jarotas!) With all that said, here’s a decent example of this hard to find model that’s ready for a new owner.

This example (VIN: 5800) has 8,105 miles and it was recently “restored”, including a sandblast and repaint of the frame. Plenty of parts (except the mufflers) were rechromed, and the carbs and front forks were rebuilt. The seller says it runs amazingly well and is a blast to ride. The seller also notes that he/she wanted to keep the original paint, and that there are two small dents in the tank and a crack in the left sidecover and tail. So, we may have different definitions of the word restored, but there’s still been plenty of work done to this lovely bike – those Brevettato Jota bars look great.
