Italianiron/Britiron Classics Ducati & Norton Frame Offerings

Divine providence would find their work exemplary and their successes, many. We are excited to offer through TGA/Molnar Precision LTD copies of these TT racer chrome-moly frames that we manufacture today in addition to the TT, Pantah & F1 bodywork kits. We are proud to offer these faithful copies of the components of Tony Rutter's original class winning racers and now done to Andy Molnar's precise manufacturing standards. Shown...

Ducati TT 1 Dual-Purpose Racer by Italian Iron Classics, LLC

  One of my favourite builds has been this TT 1 with race prepped 750 cc Ducati engine and purpose-built for either spirited track or road riding. I have always been a fan of the twin cylinder, Ducati 750 cc displacement racers from my 1973 Spaggiari Scuderia inspired 750 cc bevel drive desmo racer through to my 2001 Ducati 748 rs racer. These 750 cc engines in the Taglioni "L" twin configuration exhibit that quintessential balance between light weight, torquey and high-revving power delivery. At the track, on the dyno or up our mountain roads, this engine has that exotic "Ferrari of Motorcycles" race finesse in its exhaust note...

A Tribute to Mick Walker & the Vintage Motorcycle Racing Community

Due to the global pandemic that has been effecting us all, I have had the opportunity to reflect upon about how very fortunate I have been through my association with and involvement in the International Vintage Racing Community. I have met so many great people due to this incredible sport and sharing in its incredible history. Such is the case with meeting and then befriending Mick Walker. In addition to his being such an accomplished author and a great gent, it made my trips back to the UK much more enjoyable when I would take my Mother's car from Cambridge and drive through...
