One of two bikes commissioned in 1972 from Fritz Egli by the Swiss Laverda importer, Roland Borel. The bike was raced in national as well as international events including the '72 Imola 200. Compared to a standard SFC the bike is considerably lower, has a shorter wheelbase (1400mm vs 1470mm), has more ground clearance and at 185kg, weighs about 20kg less. Ceriani GP forks, Lockheed calipers with Scarab discs and a Grimeca rear brake are fitted. Photographed near Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 2015. Marnix van der Schalk collection.
