Richard Albee's '78/85 'Mille' Darmah

Post by dukdoc » Thu Apr 01, 2004 1:09 pm


Here’s the bike that I poured my heart and soul into back in the early to mid ‘80’s. Purchased it new in'78 and in '85 installed an ’85 Mille engine w/40mm Dellorto’s + K&N Air Filters. Reversed ’77 SS front forks, 4 Puck Brembo Calipers, Early style Floating disc’s (you can wiggle them with your fingers), Marvic Mag’s (WM5 in rear), Ohlins Shocks, etc. Just to name a few of it’s performance mod’s. For looks it’s been Repainted & installed a Camber Fairing, Black Locking Gas Cap, Removed Directionals & Seat Strap. Sandblasted & painted the Headlight Mounts & the Shortened Rear Fender Flat Black (along with a few other bits).

It was a pleasure to create and it's a great pleasure to ride such a beautiful bike :D . Now I'm planning on doing the same to a Darmah SS! Hopefully I'll be able to find the time this year to at least get it started.

Thanks for looking, Happy Trails :wink: ,
