We’ve had a request from the Laverda Club of Queensland to help clear the Italian motorcycles of deceased member “Rocket” Rod Yeoman on behalf of his widow, Del.
So it’s your chance to pick up an Italian gem and help out at the same time, according to Club secretary Joey Gittoes says.
“For those of you who knew him, he was a great person and a wealth of knowledge if you ever got locked into a conversation with him regarding motorcycles,” says Joey.
“Please take into account that Del is still grieving the loss of Rod so I would appreciate it if you spare me any ridiculous low-ball offers.
“The bikes will be available to inspect at some point through Rod’s mate Alf Carter. They are located on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.”
Rod’s Laverda Alpino 500cc has already sold, but the rest are still available. See below for prices and photos.
The Laverda Club of Queensland runs the annual Laverda Concourse every July which is considered the largest motorcycle club show in Australia. It also raises a lot of money for charities such as Make a Wish Foundation and the Racesafe Medical Team.
