I Know I Made A Post About Motorcycles Only Yesterday,

but having seen this one today,

 I just had to make a post of it, why? because it is soooooo nice!

 it started life as a 1978 900 cc touring Ducati Darmah, as it was wheeled into the workshop it left a trail of oil like the Torrey Canyon, but that did not deter the crew at Rome’s Emporio Elaborazioni Meccaniche,

 the classic 2 valve L-Twin Desmo engine was soon quickly up on the bench,  

 sharing a great deal in common with the 900SS, the engine would be the first part of the bike that would be rebuilt to be better than new,

 with the help of a set of stunning machined triple clamps a set of Ceriani front forks have been adapted to fit, at the rear new Wilburs progressive rate coil over shocks provide a radical improvement over stock without taking away at all from the classic look, 

 used by many a racer of old the Fontana four leading shoe front setup is simply beautiful, and a set this good is worth a small fortune,

 for hand controls its more exotics parts are again from yesteryear with Menani race bars attached to the forks and equipped with a Tommaselli throttle,

what a beauty, would I like one? absolutely! I just have to figure out how to get Diana on the seat! you can follow the crew on their Facebook page, photography by Fabrizio Porrozzi & Vd Photo
