They say that 3 is a magis number and that’s certainly true when it comes to Laverda. On our bench this week is a mightly Laverda 3C – a 1000cc Italian triple and one of the original superbikes of the Seventues. Most Laverdas we see are really well-maintained and this one is no exception, butContinue reading “Laverda 3C Triple”
This week we’ve got one of our favourite bikes on the bench – a T3 Moto Guzzi. This gorgeous example has just 15k miles from new on the clock and is in great condition considering it’s more than 40 years old, but it still needs some Corsa Classic love. Launched in 1975, the “T” standsContinue reading “Moto Guzzi T3 in the workshop”
At Classic Corsa we don’t just restore and recommission Italian Classics. Another iconic bike in for recommission, we love these old Honda 4s and this one has covered only 8,000 genuine miles, so it’s only just run-in. Honda certainly knows how to make fantastic quality bikes – we love working on these beauties. Contact us ifContinue reading “Classic Japanese Superbike”

Whatever the era, MV Agusta always build equisite and distinctive motorcycles. Here we have a couple of examples, both 4 cylinder bikes, that have recently been through our workshop and are awaiting collection; 750 America (made from 1975-’77) F4 1000s (designed by Massimo Tamburini in 1998, following the brand’s resurrection) It’s no wonder they’re described asContinue reading “Two generations of MV Agusta”
Another bike leaves the workshop, brought back to life by Classic Corsa. In the case it’s a Moto Guzzi V7 Eldorado, just like the motorcycle ridden by Clint Eastwood in the 1973 movie Magnum Force. Contact us if you have a classic that needs some TLC.
Two of the jobs we’re working on this week are both Italian, but that’s where the similarity ends. On one bench is a glorious Ducati 900SS, in for a full engine rebuild. And on the other bench is a delicious Bianchi Tonale 175 from 1956. You won’y often see one of these beauties, never mindContinue reading “Variety is the spice of bikes”
