Italianiron & Britiron Classics, Product Post #7, OEM Ducati Superbike Bodywork

Posted by Scot Wilson on

It has been said that at Italianiron/BritIron Classics, let us "Fuel Your Race Passions" is not just a slogan but a commitment, whether you are restoring a Ducati Bevel Drive, building a vintage TT racer for competition, a Ducati F1 vintage street bike or a Ducati Superbike. As a result, we are focused on and primarily committed to supporting the sport of Vintage Motorcycle Racing worldwide. One of the most significant offerings made at Italianiron & Britiron Classics is the availability of good quality newly manufactured fuel tanks and bodywork kits as well as vintage, refurbished OEM bodywork for Ducati 888/851 SuperbikesDucati 996 Superbikes Ducati 999 Superbikes and finally Norton Commandos. Maintaining a quality offering is our most important goal and has been our exclusive focus. We work to refurbish complete sets of bodywork all at one time for superior results and with container of paint. Therefore, we also sell complete sets for "package pricing".

Shown in the link above is an example of a set of refurbished OEM Ducati spare parts for the the 1 liter Superbikes that we offer in addition to our offering of items for the Ducati TT racers & F1 racers. I have provided a link to one of the side fairing bits but know that I have seven complete sets currently of the red and the yellow Superbike side panels that are listed or are in process. We search for OEM bits domestically but also from the UK and the EU as these items are becoming more and more scarce. As a result, between the acquisition costs, shipping costs and the ever increasing paint costs, there is naturally a  continual escalation in the costs of maintaining an authentic Ducati Superbike with OEM spare parts. We currently use only OEM factory decals on our bodywork items for authenticity. However, even those factory decals are diminishing in quality and availability for these decade old Superbikes. As such, we are creating copies of these decals when necessary. Shown below is a link to our yellow front cowling for either a Ducati 996 or one of its derivative Superbikes.

Shown above are two (2) of our four (4) front cowlings for the Ducati 996, 998, 916 & 748 Superbikes that we currently have in stock. The link above is for the red item for the Ducati 996 & derivative Superbikes. Currently we have two (2) red cowlings and two (2) yellow refurbished cowlings in stock. Do know that as these items were original equipment from two decades old Superbikes, it is often the case that there is damage somewhere that needs to be repaired or scratches that require repainting and then applying of the OEM decals under the clear where necessary. Maestro Massimo Tamburini was a sculpturing and engineering genius, however, these front cowlings despite looking very striking were prone to becoming easily damaged. Further in today's computer age, we color match the bodywork of the original OEM items by computer for the greatest accuracy. We are happy to report that our customers continue to comment on how happy they are with the quality of our end-products. Shown below is a link to our red monoposta seatbase.

Shown above are the only two (2) OEM refurbished monoposta seat bases for our Ducati Superbikes. We do have a nice selection of Ducati 996, 748 & 916 OEM biposta seatbases currently available in our inventory. Bodywork continues to be a big niche for us at and BritIron Classics as we continue to source OEM Ducati and Norton bits from our different resources worldwide. Shown below are two sets of our TT 2 fairing kits for your TT 2 racer or TT 2 street bike with openings for headlamps. Our TT 2 fairing kits are made in either red gelcoat or red gelcoat over carbon fibre and can arrive in that original state. Painting services are offered on all of our bodywork and fuel tanks at an additional fee.

In addition to our product portfolio for TT and other Ducati racers, we are also excited to support enthusiasts for Norton Manx and Norton Commando racers through Molnar Manx and BritIron Classics Norton. Please review the numerous newly manufactured TTDucati F1 and Norton Commando items such as our aluminum fuel tanks, for example, and listed on my website. As a result of our offerings, it is our hope to help you to become immersed in the history, the passion and the early technology of these amazing machines. Let us "Fuel Your Race Passions" to keep the sport of Vintage Motorcycle Racing alive and well!!
