Darmah Brake Calipers

Post by Elliot » Mon Apr 30, 2012 12:42 am

Can anybody elaborate on the original caliper type fitted to a 78 Darmah? I have looked in all my books but cannot any info.

No more complicated that 3x Brembo P2 FO8 - and still available new today (see Steve's shop, for example)*. But note: if you've got Ceriani forks**, the front 2 will have threaded mounting holes.

* Originally came with twin bleed screws. Modern ones - such as Steve sells - are single bleed.

* The forks were changed to Marzocchis in 1978 and, in contrast to the Cerianis, the calipers bolt into the Marzocchis. So it will depend on whether your 1978 is a '77 model registered in '78. All shown in Falloon's 860, 900 Mille Bible, btw.

Ciao
