Apologies if this has been asked before but I can't find a definitive answer anywhere. 

Rather fancy the foot pegs a bit further back and I believe that the Monza ones would give me that. This is a bit 'Horse, Bolt, Gate, Shut' as I have just had me metal work all powdercoated. 

But - would the Monza bottom  rails just bolt onto my V50ii or would I have to get one of my three hammers out?

If it does is the rest just a straight swap over or would it also entail a bit of additional stuff. 

Cheers

The bottom rails are interchangeable but don`t forget that both gear change and brake linkages will have to be Monza

Ah so half good then. Thanks for the info. 

I'll have to start looking for the rails and the additional bits. Missed the rails on eBay a few months ago but was dithering about then. 

Just glad I've had all my bits powdercoated. Ha ha anyone wanna swap Tongue

Cheers

Is that the linkage or the linkage and pedals/levers?

I think it might be both but it certainly is the pedals which are a lot shorter, check out this listing. This guy is quite knowledgeable when it comes to V50 s

Cheers Chris

Found that one last night, I put three offers in highest being £65 of the £75 asked, all automatically refused. I don't know why they have an 'offer' button when clearly they won't accept one unless it is bang on the button. Sort of gets me does that. 

Still I will add the rails, pedals to my list of needed bits like the steering tube, again all offers automatically refused. Ha ha 

Thanks for the information. 

Cheers

I fitted monza pedals and rider footpegs to my v65gt. The pedals swap straight over into the same frame pivot tubes. To fit the footpegs you need to drill the small frame plate just as is done for a monza.

Hope this helps

Some pics. Sorry about the quality, had to reduce them a lot to get them to load. Forgot to mention that the monza pegs fit through the drilled holes and are retained with a nut and washer.

Thanks Andrew really helpful and some great photos. Think I narrowed it down a bit. 

Talking to Nik of Niks Euro Bits last Saturday at Kempton and he seems to recall that the Monza bottom rails might not fit a Vii as the joining bits are different. He did say he wasn't quite sure. 

His suggestion was cut off brackets and re-weld further back on the rail. So toying with with both until I know for sure. Bummer bit is just had the bottom rails powdercoated. 

Cheers
