Italianiron & Britiron Classics - Keeping Vintage Racing Vital
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 or Pantah racer for competition, a Ducati F1 vintage street bike or restoring a Norton Commando or Manx racer. We offer a comprehensive, specialty portfolio of Ducati TT, Pantah, F1, and Norton engine, chassis and bodywork kits to our customers worldwide. We passionately support the sport of motorcycle racing with our race-tested, quality spares. We completely understand our enthusiastic customers whose heart rates "rev", like ours do, when they hear a masterfully tuned vintage race engine. Shown below is Eric's "work in progress" as he purchased an entire TT 900 chassis & bodywork kit from us to transform a Ducati 900 ss carbureted donor bike to the racer of his dreams!!
Much of our passion is to assist enthusiasts worldwide with our quality racing spares such as our chrome-moly race frames that we manufacture for those who wish to build a Ducati TT 2 or TT 1 like Eric below. Eric purchased a set of our top quality fiberglass TT 2 bodywork and our aluminum fuel tank that we painted for him in yellow on red to complete his dream bike!! Like many of our enthusiastic customers, the desire is to embrace the soul and the appeal of these original TT racers but with all of the safety enhancements of modern engines, electrical, brakes, metallurgy and suspension. Shown below is a set of our 53 mm yokes/triple clamps to accept the use of modern Superbike forks and using a set of our manufactured billet clip-on's. Eric also purchased the 5 spoke wheel set from us as we constantly source those items for our customers.
Introducing our new Chain Primary Drive Clutch for Norton Dominator's, Manx's, AJS 7R and Matchless G50. This is the Chain Drive version of our Belt Driven clutch. Whereas it is not an exact copy of an original item, it has been updated and improved to more effectively integrate directly into a chain driven clutch primary drive. The clutch drum is designed with a 42 tooth structure to suit 1/2" x 5/16" chain as fitted to the Primary Drives on most British motorcycles to include the Triton, Norton Dominator, Manx Norton, AJS 7R, Matchless G50 and many others. The Center is machined to fit all AMC gearbox mainshafts and later derivatives (Quaife, TTI etc) The standard center requires a minimum of 22mm of the mainshaft spline length to fit correctly. We will be listed our dry clutch kit for the Norton Commando engines very shortly.
In addition to our product portfolio of specialty racing quality spares 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. Check out our Norvil fairings & windscreen offerings. Please review the numerous newly manufactured TT, Ducati F1 and Norton Commando. British marques are listed on the Britiron or Manx section of the 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!!
