Save motorcycle heritage

€1,564 of €15,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 33 months
My father Paul, a 62 year old anesthetist, has dedicated his whole life helping and saving people.

Paul is a motorcycle enthusiast and has been ever since he was a child. He is also well known for his knowledge and his involvement in the classic motorcycle world.

Throughout the years, he has gathered a wonderful collection of Italian motorcycle and especially from his most loved brand, Laverda.

6 months from a well deserved retirement and looking forward to spend the rest of his days restoring and visiting race tracks all over Europe, his dreams were shattered.

Monday night, a bunch of thieves/vandals broke into my fathers' garage stole a bunch of tools and a motorcycle trailer and thought it would be funny to stack all the bikes together and set them all on fire! Most bike are burnt from 30% to 60%, a gilera 500 bialbero and a genuine 1976 laverda 750 sfc electronica have been totally cremated.

My father is completely annihilated by his loss. I, therefore started this go fund me to help raise money to bring those bikes, which are true pieces of motorcycle history, back on the road. This website only covers the financial side of the future restoration but if you have parts laying in a box in your garage that you are willing to donate, if you are a skilled worker and are willing to help in any other way it would be truly amazing as well!

You can contact me through this website if you are willing to help in any way possible.

I thank you deeply in advance!

Mon père Paul a dédié sa vie, de part son travail, a aider et sauver des personnes.

Paul est un motard passionné de belles machines depuis sa tendre enfance. Il est connu pour son engagement et son implication dans le monde de la moto ancienne.

Au fil des années, il a constitué une collection formidable de motos italiennes et tout particulièrement de Laverda.

À 6 mois d'une retraite bien méritée, il se voyait déjà voyagé l'Europe avec ses motos pour participer à des événements
De machines anciennes.

Dans la nuit de lundi à mardi ce rêve fut brisé net. Des voyous s'introduisent dans son hangar, volent de l'outillage et une remorque moto et décident d'empiler toute les motos et d'y mettre le feu.

La plupart des motos sont brûlées entre 30 et 60%, une gilera 500 bialbero et une laverda 750 sfc electronica sont quand à elles carbonisées.

Mon père est détruit par ces événements tragiques. Afin de ne pas laisser la victoire à ces voyous j'ai créer cette page pour que ces machines fantastiques retrouvent les routes au plus vite.

Si vous souhaitez aidé par des donations de pièces ou participer aux long travaux qui se dressent devant nous merci de me contacter directement.

Merci énormément par avance!
