This is a collection nonpareil, and represents a rarely seen opportunity for the discerning curator or collector.
The Cor Dees Collection includes 12 historic racing machines including Milano-Taranto and Motogiro works racers from the 1950s, many prototypes, and star of the collection a V6 1000cc endurance racer - with a second V6 under restoration (Sorry, neither are included in the sale).
In total there are over 80 machines in immaculate condition, along with a vast array of Laverda memoriabilia, photography, literature and documentation - the result of Cor Dees' 30 years of dedication to the marque. More...
Introduced in 1961, around 4,500 of the 200's rolled off the Breganze production line between 1962 and 1967. This machine was the very last one.
The OHV 200cc twin cylinder engine produced 11hp at 6500rpm giving the 120kg machine a top speed of 115 km/h.
