Stu,my Darmah is a 1981 model so straight 38mm crank pin. (Had it over 25 years now :) )
I bought a 77 Darmah some years back to break for spares but it turned out to be engine number 556 so that got mothballed and then went out and bought a mint 82 rolling chassis.
Spares are not looking to bad on that front.

Will give Ducati auctions a rest and move over to H2's :laugh

The con rod story is an ordeal in itself will get back to it.

When I had mine I made a new pin from EN36b and had it case carburiesd to 80thou. came up at about rockwell 50 I think. I reused some S/H rods and cages . had the rods lightly hone and the pin was ground to suit so it had a slight step in it. I got some new 3mm roller from a bearing service which were a couple of mmm too long and made a jig to grind them to length .
Overall a very successful outcome.
I also toyed with the idea of using the 36mm rods and 3mm rollers and putting some offset on the pin. I roughted out the pin and had it hardened at the same time but as it involved making cages of a larger diameter to suit the pin and rods it was never finished.
I have a contact down here who may have some bits if you are chasing. He has a 72gt with scarabs and originally it had amals too. let me know if you need....

also have a mate who has 2 (yes 2) of the kawasaki triple racing bikes (original factory items with the tubular ecternal frames etc. also has an rgb500 engine no 1

makes you cry................

It's not just bevel's fetching serious money ...... :dowhat :banghead :banghead

Probably one of my favourites after the bevel's, I've always fancied the looks ...... aftr passing my test I really wanted a Montjuic 500 (they were deliberately styled to mimic the 750), but funds meant I ended up with a Morini 31/2 :laugh :laugh

My friend has seen this very bike in action at an MV owners track day (the guy has a big - and thus expensive - collection of both MV's and Laverdas) and said it sounds awesome on full chat :hail :hail

The reality is some of the bikes i have i could not afford now,probably should have taken the Vincent when it was offered (under £6000) not to mention the Egli Kawasaki or RGB500 :laugh
