As a long-term Ducatista (50 years!), I’ve owned some of the best and ridden most of the rest. My own highlight was the ’74 750 Sport, which I rode from Ohio to California (with clip-ons), a trip described in the May ’75 issue of Cycle Guide. Next in line would be the Desmo 350 and the 250 Scrambler. In my seniority I remain bevelheaded....More here: http://www.ducati.net/2012/04/bevelheaded-by-tod-rafferty/

Mr Rob Ward brought his ailing Darmah to us in March of this year with some good ideas and imagination. This machine no longer resembles the machine it was.

The modifications to this machine are endless. Twin under seat pipes, FZR1000 front suspension and brake assemblies all fully polished and overhauled. New bearings throughout and a rear sprocket to suit the FZR rear wheel. A billet rear calliper retainer, holds the polished rear calliper in position, without the need for a tourque bar. Rear caliper is from an RG500, polished and pistons sleeved. Braided line is used throughout this unique hand made motorcycle. 40 mm carbs feed the re-built 860cc desmo motor, rebuilt at H.M.R. The fuel tank currently under construction at H.M.R. along with the seat will house a billet aluminium Newton filler cap, and twin taps feed the blackened dellorto’s. Chain-guard, breather, handle-bars, dash cluster all made here at H.M.R. Switch clusters in polished alloy resided once on a GT750 Suzuki. A Tommaselli quick grip connects the two cables to the accelerator pump equipped carb’s. One tweak of this throttle has you falling for the V-twin all over again.
