1978 Ducati 900 SD Darmah
San Francisco, CA
Like many of the 70's Ducati twins, this bike suffered from a faulty ignition system. Fortunately, after many years of unavailability, a new Silent Hektik ignition was sourced out of Australia. Once installed and after a carb re-build, the bike was once again back on the road.

The Ducati Darmah is in all respects a thoroughbred motorcycle in the best tradition of the great Italian manufactures. Named after a fictional tiger, the Darmah does have something of a tiger quality with its effortless power and agility. With light weight, good balance and a sturdy frame, this bike is just about the quickest on a twisty road. The power unit is a 900 V-Twin engine mounted longitudinally in the frame with the rear cylinder offset to the right of the front.
