This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1979 Laverda 1000 Jarama was sold new in Illinois in 1980 and was recently acquired by the selling dealer from a collector in Oregon. Power is provided by an air-cooled 980cc triple with dual overhead camshafts, and drive is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed transmission with chain drive. The bike has been refinished in a custom black and orange scheme and is fitted with a Don Vesco faring and Brembo disc brakes. This Laverda is now offered by the selling dealer in Oregon at no reserve with a clean Illinois title.

An included dealer key tag indicates that the bike was originally green, though it has been refinished in a custom two-tone black and orange scheme. The front faring is a Don Vesco item which houses the headlight, turn signals, and a set of integrated mirrors. The original headlight housing is present behind the faring, and a blanking plate is fitted in lieu of a headlamp. A crack is shown in the left side cover, and other imperfections are shown in the gallery.

A walk-around video is viewable above. The 18″ aluminum wheels are fitted with an older Michelin rear tire and Dunlop front, and braking is handled by twin front and a single rear Brembo disc brake. A set of adjustable Street Stroke coilover assemblies are fitted at the rear.

Instrumentation consists of a 150-mph speedometer and a 10k-rpm tachometer, with warning lights integrated into the individual instrument housings. The tachometer is not currently working, though the seller had it working briefly during his ownership. Approximately 12,900 miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer.

Power is provided by a 980cc three-cylinder engine with dual overhead camshafts, two valves per cylinder, and triple 32mm Dell’Orto carburetors. The seller describes a leak from one of the fuel shutoffs in certain positions, and notes that the faring makes the choke challenging to reach. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed transmission with chain drive.

The chassis tag is pictured above, and the matching serial numbers on the frame and engine case are shown in the gallery. The tag notes that the bike was built in September 1977, though the bike is titled as a 1979 on the 1980-issue Illinois title.
