Ducati 851 Customer Project Completion

We are using this time dealing with the global pandemic to work on the completion of projects to include our customer Ducati 851 S with 996 engine transplant. It has taken a lot of work and expertise to rewire an entire motorcycle. However, we do feel good with the result as it was done to the customer's specifications.

Italian Iron Classics & Biggelaar Specialty Performance-Serving Worldwide

As I have been retired from the corporate world for the past five years, I feel so fortunate to be involved in the world of Ducati racing and offering spare parts for going on 30 plus years. Back in the 1990's and early 2000's, racing a Ducati 750 desmo and a Ducati 748 rs, I ended up with loads of parts which is how I initially I got my start. How fortunate it is that I have made so many wonderful friends in the vintage racing and restoration world. Now I wish to give back. Further, I need to thank the Biggelaar...
