Italianiron & Britiron Classics Celebration of Vintage Racers in the Picturesque American Southwest

Italianiron Classics was founded in the mid 1990's from a race effort when I was campaigning a 1973  Spaggiari Scuderia Ducati 750 ss replica and later adding an 01 Ducati 748 rs. This was after trying my hand at racing on an old Norton 750 Commando before discovering how brilliantly the power delivery and longer wheelbase of the early Ducati bevel drives fit me better and my approach to racing. This was also a time when I started my hobby of restoring old Ducati bevel drives when I could still purchase "basket cases" for $3,000 US. Those were the days! However, my motivation comes from a...

Our TT 1000 Build, Italianiron & BritIron Classics Value Proposition

Our TT 1000 Build, Italianiron & BritIron Classics Value Proposition

One of my favourite builds has been this TT 1000 with Ducati Monster 1000 cc S2R DS engine and now purpose-built for either spirited track or road riding. I have always been a fan of the big Ducati twin cylinder engines that started with my 1973 Spaggiari Scuderia inspired 750 cc bevel drive desmo racer through to my 2001 Ducati 996 rs racer. The Taglioni "L" twin configuration exhibits 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 and loads of "grunt" while pulling hard through the gears.

The purpose of this blog post is to share why we are so busy supporting racers and...
