Arrow VMCC Calendar - June

Just turned the page on the VMCC Calendar to reveal a very tidy Triumph-Greeves. It is based on an Anglian frame, with Ceriani style forks. A very nice machine. The builder is Chris Sawyer on the Isle of Man. I will try and post a picture.

It seems one has to resort to novel plumbing in order to get the right hand exhaust to meet the left one, if a siamese is required! That is a very tight bend...

Hi Ian

I thought the square section exhaust was rather tight in places. My own T-G has some tight bends but do not impact on performance.

Default Cut and bent

When I had the exhaust pipes made I was told they could be bent, however they were cut and welded. I sure a mandrel bender could do the tight bend required.
