Biggelaar Performance-Italian Iron Classics, Racebike Engine Builds

Italian Iron Classics, LLC would like to announce that we will be a provider of specialty Ducati Superbike race and Bevel Drive engines built and set-up by Biggleaar Performance. It is remarkable how time does fly and it has been just over 10 years since I was introduced to Toine Biggelaar of Biggelaar Performance in Oisterwijk, The Netherlands. It was then that I purchased my first Ducati 996 rs Superbike with the engine that Toine had built.  Since then, we have been fortunate to work with this Third Generation Ducati dealership of racers on Ducati Bevel Drive projects such as the Ducati 900 Super Sport SSD....

Holiday in England, Expanding Opportunities for Italian Iron Classics LLC

I am in arrears with regards to writing my Blog Posts according to the internet gurus and for that, I apologize.
