Series C Rapide - Breather Extensions - anyone know where I can have some made


Well Known and Active Forum Website User

Hi All,

I'd like to have a set of breather extensions made up in stainless steel like those in Figure 22 on page 203 of Know Thy Beast.

I don't want an elephant breather and just extending the flexible pipe is an option but I'd like something which looks a bit smarter.

Can anyone recommend someone to do the job for me, perhaps someone that has already made up a few sets of other Vincent owners and has the necessary jigs/templates.

I have a "D" centre stand fitted and so the rear footrest hanger plate is a little further out that normal - hence the mounting brackets would need to be made up to suit the bike.

I'd be very grateful for someone pointing me in the right direction.

Running in going very well - now at 900 miles.
