Italianiron & Britiron Classics 2023 Shipping News

Posted by Scot Wilson on

At Italianiron & BritIron Classics, let us "Fuel Your Race Passions" is not just a slogan but a commitment, whether you are building a vintage TT, F1 or Pantah racer for competition or restoring a Norton Commando or Manx racer. We wish to thank all of our customers internationally and domestically for another great year!! We continue to maintain 67% of our sales internationally.  This is in part due to the fact that we offer significant discounts through our shipping partners. As a result, in the past couple of weeks,  we have shipped a Norton frame to France, a MV engine to Romania, and Pantah engines to Australia in addition to smaller items very inexpensively. For all of our customers and those customers who we have been discussing your ordering of our TT frames, TT bodywork kits and our Marvic magnesium wheels, please know that I am having shoulder surgery at the VA on 6 Jan 23 that will disrupt the timing of shipping of your orders. It appears that jumping out of too many perfectly good airplanes and helicopters when I was in the USMC and pushing the limits of grip at the racetrack has caught up with this 67 year old body.

 

As a result, I will be in a sling and working one-armed for a few weeks starting on 9 Jan 23. Shown above are two of my favorite Ducati 750 cc racers used in Formula 750Heavy Twins and BOTT when testing the limits of grip. Those racers are a Ducati 748 rs with FBF "big bore" kit and my Spaggiari Scuderia Ducati 750 Desmo (replica) racer that we are currently in the process of rebuilding for the track. I do not own the Ducati 748 rs any longer but it is now owned, raced and well taken care of by a race engineer friend with Ferrarri here in the US who is also a Ducatisti!! It is my hope that my injury does not create too much inconvenience for any of our valued customers. Please just bear with me as I work to rehabilitate my right arm and I will get to your orders as quickly as I can. Obviously, shipping of engines will be suspended temporarily. However, my son is in town through 11 January 23 who could assist me with the preparation of your order. 2023 will be another great year for us and our customers as we will be adding many more specialty racing bits.

We will also (finally) be completing our Norton 920 cc JPN as well as other Ducati projects on the lifts in 2023. Do stay tuned! At Italianiron BritIron Classics, we offer a wide spectrum of race quality spares for the Ducati TT, Pantah, F1 racers as well as for the Norton Manx and Norton Commando racers. We also have a large amount of OEM items for vintage Ducati's and Nortons. Check out our Italianiron.com website for Ducati, TT, Molnar Manx and BritIron bits. We remain committed to supporting the world of Vintage Motorcycle Racing as well as to supporting those specialty bike builders as a supplier of quality chassis, bodywork and specialty racing spare parts. As mentioned before, at Italianiron.com, let us "Fuel Your Race Passions" is not just a slogan but a commitment whether you are building a vintage TT racer for competition, a Ducati F1 vintage street bike or a classic Norton Commando or Manx

  • Scot, my body feels all its 65 years without having jumped out of any helicopters or aircraft! Take the rehab at your pace I’m sure customers will recognise your priorities! Love reading your blogs!
