Franz Schneider

Franz is an mechanical engineer and rides and services motorcycles since 1985. Already as a kid he was especially impressed by the orange SFC racers from Breganze. After 18 years of experience with several motorcycles it was finally time: He started to search for his LAVERDA.

“In the autumn of 2003 I had the chance to test ride a LAVERDA 750 SF2 at Wolfgang Huber – I was enthusiastic! Nevertheless I also tested a 1200 and a Moto Guzzi 850, but it was basically clear from the start: a LAVERDA 750 will be my next bike!"

After a long search – 750 SF are quite rare in Austria – Franz got lucky via the Internet: "I found an SF3 in Slovenia. She was registered and regularly ridden. The impression during the test ride was good. At the beginning of August 2004 a friend and I went and picked her up with a trailer. The SF3 was evaluated in November with a report as a historic vehicle and registered. Even the long awaited first ride was still possible. I came home with a broad grin on my face!"

Throughout the winter Franz carried out the necessary maintenance during which the good overall impression was confirmed. He couldn't wait for the first spring with his LAVERDA! The first tour immediately took him to Breganze...
