I have a Laverda Mirage which I bought second hand in 1983. It is original apart from the usual stainless and shocks. Mileage130k kms. I've been all over Europe on it, and to the IoM TT three times. I ride it less often nowadays, maybe 1500 miles a year. Never had a serious problem, never been in the engine further than doing valve clearances and a generator bearing. These photos are a track day at Brands Hatch June 2010.
