Laverda Museum - Cor Dees Motorcycle Collection

Cor Dees - Laverda Motorcycle Collection

  • Entire Museum with 81 Motorcycles & Prototypes
  • Assorted motorabilia, collectibles and artifacts
  • Sold

The entire Museum Collection of Laverda motorcycles and collectibles from renowed collector and marque specialist Cor Dees is now sold.

The collection features 81 motorcycles, scooters and mopeds and covers the complete history of Moto Laverda from 1950 to 2000.

Dees dedication to the Laverda marque has evolved in a second to none display of this North-Italian motorcycle brand. He collected everything related, even artifacts and old machinery showing the agricultural roots of Laverda.

Due to his close friendship with the Laverda family he was able to purchase many of the bikes and associated memorablia directly from the factory. He collected the bikes he liked, and those bikes are significant in the history of Laverda.

For instance, there's one of the first production Laverda's, a 75 Turismo built in 1950 or Massimo Laverda's personal 1951 Laverda 75 Turismo which he graciously donated to the museum.

There's also an early example of a first batch Laverda 650 from May 1968 which formed the basis for the highly succesful Laverda 750 range and the 1971 Milano EICMA Motorshow Laverda 1000 3C Prototipo.

The Laverda Museum Collection also comprises 12 historic racing motorcycles from the celebrated Italian manufacturer. From the factory's 1970s heydays as well as a selection of Milano-Taranto and Motogiro works racers from the 50's.

Highlights include the one of three remaining 1975 ex-Brettoni, Gallina, Fougeray and Lucchinelli 1000 spaceframe works endurance racers and the ex-Marcello Danna 1954 Motogiro d'Italia Corsa 75.

The collection also houses the ex-Franz Laimböck purpose-built 1975 Laverda 1200 monocoque special , the 1975 Laverda 750 SFC that won the 1976 Belgium Championship and the 1987 prototype 125cc Grand Prix Racer driven by Allesandro Gramigni.

Really unique is the Laverda 750 sidecar outfit, fitted with a SFC works engine tuned to side-car race specifications, and finishing second in the Italian championship.

Also forming part of the collection are several small displacement bikes, scooters and mopeds as well as enduro, cross and off-road machinery. Zanè factory built bikes are also included as well as the Cruiser, Hidalgo and El Cid prototypes.

Due to Mr. Dees extensive knowledge and experience in mechanical engineering and great attention to detail, all motorbikes are in original, mint or near mint condition or professionally restored to a very high standard.

Only the 75 Moto-Giro, 100 ISDT, 8000 Batch SFC, two 750's and a triple need a complete restoration, thus will be sold as is in their present condition.

The museum is a treasure in its own right, with a documented summary of the history and highlights of Moto Laverda in words and photographs, original race leathers worn by Augusto Brettoni and Roberto Gallina and personal belongings of several other works riders.

Cutaway engines of the 500 twin and 1000 triple as well as countless manuals, sales brochures, parts catalogues, leaflets, letters, photographs, posters and other interesting Laverda material are all part of the collection.

Even the original Laverda entrance sign of the old Breganze factory made out of marble will be included in the sale. This 400 kg and 4 m long ornament decorated the Laverda works between 1952 and 2000, until the building was demolished.

This was a life-time opportunity, and probably the last and only possibility, to acquire the most important collection of Laverda motorcycles, prototypes and assorted memorabilia in existence worldwide. 300+ square meters of motorcycle heritage.

Dees passion for Laverda motorcycles was originally inspired by a Laverda at the 1973 Dutch TT. Now, after thirty years of collecting, he feels that it's finally time to hand over the keys.

Though the complete collection was for sale, Mr. Dees kept the most significant specimen of Laverda engineering: the 1991 V6 racer in 24-hour endurance race trim. After eight years of determination he has rebuild this legendary V-Six.

His other Laverda V6: the Laverda 1000 V6 prototype with 1977 EICMA Milano expo specifications nears completion as well and will be available at the end of 2017.

The Museum opened its doors in 2006 during an event enjoyed by more then 330 enthusiasts from all over the world including Piero and Giovanni Laverda as well as factory racing drivers Augusto Brettoni, Roberto Gallina, Nino Castellani, Fernando Cappellotto, Edoardo Dossena and many former Moto-Laverda employees.

The collection is well-known and attracts a lot of interest from both motorcycle enthusiasts and collectors as well as people from all over the world with a passion for heritage, culture, transport and design.

Journalists of world's leading magazines have written numerous articles regarding the Museum and the collection has been beautifully pictured by renowned photographer Phil Aynsley, as can be seen on the right side of this page.
