Italian Iron Classics, LLC, New Dealer for SmartCarb Technology Elevated

At Italian Iron Classics, LLC we are very excited to announce that we have been chosen to become an authorized dealer for SmartCarb Technology Elevated here in the US. We were fortunate enough to be introduced by Michael Arnott of the OEM Hand Held Dyno in Australia and the rest is history as they say.  Our company focus remains on Vintage Racing Motorcycles and especially Ducati TT Racers and Ducati bevel drive race bikes. Our company philosophy has always been to take the "soul" of the vintage motorcycle and enhance it with the best of modern technology. This is why we are...

The Soft Science of Pricing #2-Painting Costs

When looking at purchasing OEM Ducati bodywork, it is important to understand what is involved. The decision for you the buyer is whether it makes more sense to repair your own item or to purchase one of our  refurbished items?  As mentioned in previous posts, when incurring the costs of repair, color matching and applying new clear, there is an obvious cost to that. I get exceptionally good prices from very talented craftsman here in Tucson, Arizona and share that with our customers. These very competitive costs are not typically found in our larger US cities. This is a nice competitive advantage.  ...

The Soft Science of Pricing

Thank you to all of our loyal customers who have purchased from our website, Italianiron.com and from our italianironclassics Ebay store. We work hard to be fair in how we price our vintage and modern Ducati Spare Parts. However, there can always be a difference of opinion. Let me share some thoughts. Not every provider of vintage motorcycle spare parts is out to take advantage of the customer. I would contend, however, that shipping companies, financial institutions and organizations such as Ebay seem to fall within that category. However, these organizations do effect pricing.   My reality with regard to pricing is...

Italianiron TT 1000 Racer Progresses with Two Wheel Classics-UK Kit

The team here at Italianiron is really having a good time getting familiar with the TWC or Two Wheel Classics-UK TT 1000 chassis and bodywork kits. As we will be making these kits available here in the Western Hemisphere, it is critical that we understand the "in's and out's" of the build so that we can provide maximum guidance to that enthusiast who wishes to build their own Ducati TT Racer. We will also offer services to build that TT Racer at the customer's request.  We knew that this TT 1000 Racer build was going to be a "special project" as we are using a...

Italianiron TT 1000 Racer Project with Two Wheel Classics-UK Kit

Progress continues on our Italianiron TT 1000 Racer with Monster S2R 1000 cc engine. The trellis chrome moly frame from Two Wheel Classics is so light but so strong and almost immediately fit our large modern engine right out of the box. We had to remove the vertical cylinder belt cover backing plate, replace the vertical cam pulley and then shave a small amount of fins from the left side of our Monster engine for the frame to fit. Now the engine fits perfectly in the TT frame.  I am really pleased with the quality of the Two Wheel Classics-UK frame...
