    This is the latest rebuild from Gavin Spencer's workshop.
    This time it's a Laverda 3C 1000.
    First photo is how it started.
    This bike won best European Bike at the recent Stafford
    classic Bike Show.
    Next on the stocks is a Ducati SS 100, so watch this space.

    That is some beautiful work. Thanks.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    I would say that qualifies as a professional restoration.

    Beautiful.
