Benefits of SmartCarb Float Bowl Pressurization Circuit

Our winter here in the desert is almost over and soon I will be getting back on the bikes for participation in more SmartCarb test rides at the track as well as on Ducati Club rides. We are extremely excited at the successes that we have experienced with using the SmartCarbs with our different Ducati Bevel Drive & TT Racers. The purpose of this blog post is to discuss our findings as to the superiority of the SmartCarb design and specifically the benefits of the pressurized float bowl. This technology truly puts the SC in an entirely different category and a quantum leap above other brands. I...

Italian Iron-Product Offerings

At Italian Iron Classics, LLC we continue to be very excited about what we see as the significant technical upgrades that will be provided to the Two Wheel Classics TT inventory and offerings through the acquisition of TWC by Molnar Precision LTD.

News from Italian Iron Classics & BritIron Classics

Happy New Year!! It is amazing that another year has passed by again. However, 2019 was another successful year for us and I wish to thank all of our Italian Iron Classics, LLC customers, vendors and associates. 2020 is already taking shape to be an even more significant production year. Our passions and focus remain on vintage Ducati racers and additionally now with Norton motorcycles.

Ducati 851 Superbike, Current Customer Project

Ducati 851 Superbike, Current Customer Project

This is the 6th Ducati 888/851 project where we are replacing the 851 S engine with a larger 996 cc engine. Fortunately, in this build, we have found a low mileage Monster S4R engine that can accept the 851 rear swingarm spindle without modificiation.

However, the 888/851 frame eventually evolved into the Ducati Monster frame and has a very comfortable riding position. This could...

At BritIron Classics, a Division of Italianiron, We will be Building Norton Racers As Well

 We established BritIron Classics earlier as a division of Italian Iron Classics LLC, as we do enjoy working on Norton, Triumph and BSA's. Growing up as a wee lad in Edinburgh, Scotland in the 1960's, I developed my passion for motorcycle racing by following the racing "greats". This was also the time when the sport of motor racing was simultaneously exploding in popularity on the world stage. Shown below are two of my favourite racers, Paul Smart (#74) who I have met at the AHRMA vintage race weekend at Mid-Ohio in the US and Peter Williams (#3) who I would love to meet some day, racing...
