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 racer for competition, a Ducati F1 vintage street bike or a classic Norton CommandoDominator or Atlas twin. As a result, we are focused on and primarily committed to supporting the sport of Vintage Motorcycle Racing worldwide first and foremost. Maintaining a quality offering is the most important goal for us. We continue to be very busy operating both Italianiron & Britiron Classics, LLC. In addition to offering our aluminum shallow sump and deep sump Ducati TT fuel tanks, we are also enjoying assisting our new British motorcycle customers. Our specialty spares are race tested for quality and assurance of structural integrity, performance, light weight and for reliability. That is the measure for everything that we do. As a result, being cheapest is not our primary mission but providing good "value" for our race quality spares is what we strive to achieve. Shown below is our very popular aluminum TT 900 "shallow sump" fuel tank for TT racers using modern Ducati engines.

We continue to get orders for our "hand-crafted" aluminum Norton Commando fuel tanks as well. Our most popular sellers have been the Roadster Commando tank, Fastback Commando tank, and lately our Norvil Commando fuel tank in addition to our aluminum Manx fuel tanks. Shown below is an example of our aluminum Norton Commando Roadster fuel tank for the Norton 850 & 750 Commando, but it will also fit Triton`s and Cafe Racers using the Norton Commando chassis. Our tanks are faithful copies of the 1975 Commando "Roadster" tank and are manufactured by hand on an English Wheel, Gas welded and annealed all over to prevent cracking. This tank will fit the original Commando seat. Our tank is supplied with twin 1/4" BSP fuel tap bosses & 2" Monza flip cap. It can be supplied in a raw brushed finish or polished for an extra charge. Please contact me at to discuss your requirements for Norton, Manx and other British marques.

As we are specialists in offering quality, specialty racing spares for Ducati's and Norton's, we are proud to announce our "expanded' offering of the Norvil racing fuel tank for the Norton 850 & 750 Commando. Do note that our Norton Norvil fuel tank will also fit Triton`s and Cafe Racers using the Norton Commando chassis. This fuel tank is a faithful copy of the Norvil production racer tank and is modified to suit the Norton Commando frame. It is manufactured by hand on an English Wheel, Gas welded and annealed all over to prevent cracking. Due to consumer demand, we now offer two sizes of this famous fuel tank. The "Long" Norvil fuel tank sits approximately  20mm beyond the tubing of the seat subframe and is being made available primarily for racers who need greater fuel capacity. The "Short" Norvil fuel tank will fit the Commando frame and stock seat. This fuel tank fits just in front of the seat subframe in a traditional position and is the preferred option for the street rider.

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. Check out our Norvil fairings & windscreen offerings. 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. 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!!
