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.

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.

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.

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...

Italianiron TT 1000 Build Using TWC TT Racer Kit

The team here at Italianiron Classics, LLC have begun our first all Two Wheel Classics-UK TT Racer Project with a complete TT 900 chassis kit and complete TT 1 bodywork kit.

Italianiron/Two Wheel Classics-UK Ducati 650 Pantah Racer Project

At Italian Iron Classics LLC, we are very excited to be the US & Canadian dealer for Two Wheel Classics-UK. It is our goal to share our unique builds as well as to illustrate through videos how the Ducati TT enthusiasts can buy a complete kit to make their own Pantah Racer, TT 1/TT 2, or a TT 900 with modern 2 valve engines. Our first inspiration is below.  This Ducati Pantah Racer was found at the local Ducati dealer in Florence, Italy on our last trip. I could not keep this image out of my mind. Now we are building a...
