Hi Matty, what exhaust system are you using with the tow bar? Do you know if I can retain my vintage speed exhaust with this tow bar? It looks like it might not be compatible? Thanks, Jez

Depends which vs exhaust you are using. Works with the one with the exit pipe is away from the centre like this oneImage

If your has the exit pipe coming across the exhaust muffler it doesn’t fit..... unless you hit it with a hammer !!!!

Sorry again I’m not sure, hopefully someone else can answer that for you!

Send over a pic so I can take a look, could hazard a guess!

Have you used this with a cycle rack - just wondering what the clearance is between the swan neck and rear bumper

If you have a VS exhaust with side exit.. fits fine!
Maybe a slight adjustment to valance but no clash!

As starsky2627 says should fit with that type of vintage speed exhaust.

I used a tow bar type bike rack and that was fine, better than the type that rests on the tailgate which could cause damage!

Yes - I contacted the makers yesterday, doesn’t work with my VS exhaust, you need the side exit version..
