1979 Laverda Jota Mk 1, 180, 981cc. Registration number BHM 903T. Frame number V.1200*6420* GM17575OM. Engine number 1000 *6420*. Laverda began with the manufacture of farm machinery, diversifying into production of small capacity motorcycles in 1949. Increases in capacity and variations of design (including a scooter) followed over the years. They eventually offered a large-capacity 650cc twin in 1966, which was soon enlarged to 750. In 1969 Laverda exhibited their first three-cylinder machine which was to take until 1972 before being offered to the public as the 3C, later becoming the 3C(E). At the instigation of the British importer, Roger Slater, performance was enhanced by Laverda and the 3C(E) became the Jota. The 180 had the distinction of being the fastest production motorcycle in the world in the late 1970s, at over 140mph.
The Jota model ran from 1976 through to 1982 and is powered by a 981cc DOHC air cooled inline triple with a dry weight of 234 kg. Originally fitted with a crankshaft with 180° crankpin phasing and ignition timing on the right hand side of the engine till 1980. Then in 1981 the ignition timing which was by then electronic, was moved to the left side and in 1982 the Jota 120° was released which had the crankpin phasing to 120°.
BHM comes with a Slaters confirmation of import into the UK in May 1979 and was sold by Hexagon of Highgate. By 2002 it was with J. Carter of Cambridgeshire and then in April 2008 with David Hands of Warrington, there are many receipts on file during his ownership, including the rebuilding of the front forks by Slaters (£348) and replacement wheels in 2009 (£1480). Our vendor bought it from Made in Italy in September 2010 when the mileage was 13,234. MOT history goes from 2006 at 12,441 miles through to the new one, dated 16/07/21 at 14,441 miles.
Presented in very good condition, it fired up easily when collected by the cataloguer; it is only being sold to ill health.
Sold with the V5C, current and past MOT's, various receipts mentioned and the Slaters letter. It should be noted that the frame is a replacement one, correctly stamped with the original frame number.
1971 Rickman Metisse Commando 750cc. Registration number not registered with DVLA. Frame number 34. Engine number 1333
Initially Rickman frame designs were for scrambles, and then for road racing. Later, in 1966, road bikes were produced as well, the first street legal bike used a Triumph Bonneville engine. Rickman initially supplied frame kits to the public, as no major British motorcycle manufacturers would sell engines separately. The frame kits were built for many engines, including Triumph twins, BSA singles and Matchless. In the mid-1960s, Rickman also produced road-racing frames for AJS 7Rsingles, and in the 1970s they began selling chassis kits for Japanese bikes like the Honda CB750 and Kawasaki Z1. The road bikes were the first to use disc brakes both front and rear (a joint project with Lockheed). The bikes or frame kits were known for their beautiful fiberglass work and nickel - plated frames and are often referred to as "Metisse" frames, a term used for their own first effort. The Rickmans had a sense of humour, Google translates the word politely as "mongrel".
This well used racing example was raced by East Yorkshire rider Mick Brown throughout the 1970’s and 80’s. He was a stalwart at local club events such as Carnaby, Elvington and Cadwell, while attending national events at Oliver’s Mount and Croft, his last event with the bike at the Bob Mac Memorial at East Fortune in June 2007.
The frame is believed to have come from Essex and was originally made for a Matchless G50 and is believed to have a Tom Kirkby connection, but this has not been verified. In an official programme for the 1986 Festival of Yesteryear at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough, Mick had entered the bike as being from 1971. The only identification marking is the number 34 on the head stock, but after consultation with Gerry Lisi at Metisse, he asserted that this would not be a Rickman number.
Mick slotted a 750 Norton Commando lump into the frame that was first built and tuned by Jim Bowen and maintained by Mick himself. The engine sports a 4S camshaft with 34mm Mk1 Amal Concentric carbs on inlet extensions with an original Smiths Racing Conical rev counter to keep an eye on the horses. Power is delivered via chain primary drive through a Mick Hemmings supplied Quaife 5 speed box, identification number 00711. Stopping power is through Norton Lockheed calipers and discs front and rear. The wheels are period Borrani – WM2/1.85 – 18 rims.
The machine would benefit from an overhaul but could be soon returned to it’s natural pastures on the race track.
