1981 Ducati SD900 Darmah ~
This is a 1981 SD900 Ducati Darmah
project bike that needs to find a home with someone who will
take the time and put it back together. I have had it for 20+
years and have not touched it since - no time! I purchased it
along with several other bevel drives & a huge horde of parts
back then from a collector in southern California. Everything he
told me about all the other bikes purchased proved to be 100%
true so I have no reason to believe anything different on this
He told me that this bike was one he
rode around town and did long rides on. It has just over 18K
miles on it. He decided to freshen up the motor and clean things
up a bit. What you see here is what he got done before selling
everything Ducati related he owned to me back then. The motor
has been rebuilt and has zero miles on it since the rebuild. The
chassis and wheels he powder coated yellow. The bodywork he
painted red and yellow, maintaining the Darmah theme.
All the other bits and pieces he
removed, boxed up and there everything has sat. Look at the
photos.... He just unbolted the entire front brake system and
put away. Same with the rear brake system. All the electrical he
just removed from the chassis and put the whole enchilada into a
I just found a pair of intake
manifolds and the correct PHF32CD/CS carbs for the bike to
include with the purchase....
What I do not see are; the mufflers,
stock headlight ears (there are some aftermarket ones you will
see in the photo with the rear turn signals), front turn
signals. There might be
other things MIA, please study the photos carefully as
everything shown is what you will get if you decide to purchase
If your plan is to purchase the bike
and part it out, please don't bother calling me. I want someone
to get it back together and get out there and enjoy it as it was
meant to be ridden.
It would be best if you come
here to collect this bike since it it really not "put together"
for transport through a shipper. The 2nd to the last photo does
show everything included in the sale that is packed up in the 2
boxes. Headlight, front fender and chain guard sitting on top.
It's really not that much. If I need to bolt things together
enough to ship plan on adding $250 to the overall cost. Buyer
will be responsible for shipping costs of the bike as well as
however many boxes everything else gets put into.

This bike is located in
Concord, California just east of San Francisco & is offered to
be sold "As Is / Where Is" with a
clear California title & registration in my name. I have described the bike to the best of my
knowledge. There is absolutely no warranty
expressed or implied - its a 41 year old motorcycle and there is
bound to be other things discovered over time once the bike
starts to be ridden, like all bevel drives...
NOTE: Concord is a 45min
drive from SFO airport or 1.25 hour BART ride from SFO. If you
choose to fly in to have a look, Steve can pick you up from the
N. Concord/Martinez BART station and take you to it - by
arrangement of course, then take you back to the BART station so
you can fly back out easily. After we work out a deal on the
bike, Steve can arrange shipping for you.
What you see here are literally all the
bits and pieces stacked up next to the bike so you can see it
doesn't take up a whole bunch of room....
