1969 AMERICAN EAGLE 750

Serial entrepreneur, Jack McCormack, set up the American Eagle motorcycle brand in the late 1960s. He had previously been a major player in establishing both Honda and Suzuki motorcycles in the USA. Jack McCormack had contacted Massimo Laverda, eldest son of Francesco and now General Manager of Moto Laverda, offering to become the importer of the big Laverda twins, however, he insisted that the engine capacity be increased to 750cc. Production started in February of 1968 with the 750GT. Machines brought into the US had McCormack’s American Eagle badging. With cosmetic changes, American Eagle offered three variations of the 750 – the “Classic” (a GT), the “Super Sport” (with a styled fiberglass tank) and the rare “Production Racer”. American Eagle closed shop by the end of 1969 with Laverdas being subsequently brought into the US by a number of importers. This 1969 titled American Eagle “Classic” is an extraordinary survivor with just 203 original miles. It is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. This is a virtually new machine, a true 750 American Eagle (Laverda) time capsule.  Selling with California title.
