Tubular Belle

Whilst photographing a feature bike over at Metmachex Engineering in deepest Derbyshire yesterday, MDM spotted this rather glorious swinging arm being finished off.
It's a tubular arm for a GS Thou, based around the designs used for the original Superbike racers, many of which ran with dry sump systems, hence the oil tank incorporated into the front of the tank.
This design is something of a departure for Metmachex, given that, previoulsy, the greater majority of their 'arms have been of a box section construction, but it neatly proves that the long-standing company can turn their hands to any design of swinging arm you desire...
