Is this what you need or is it a gear change as there is no pedal ?



If not does anyone else need it ?

I have had a look at the Ambos etc and it appears not to be from these. Came in a box of Guzzi bits but what it is for I dunno.

Cheers

LOL, it was still a good idea Ian! My fault I looked at all of the part numbers but for the wrong models I guess.

I do need a left hand side shifter for a bike with footpegs (gear lever) - I ordered one but it's the wrong part. Can anyone help locate one please?
Cheers

And here's the proof - quite a larger diameter splined shaft for pegs pedal than boards. Why? i dunno. but there it is. Easy to change but the switch from boards to pegs is not quite as straightforward as I'd thought!

That's a lot bigger. Like you, I wonder why.

Are the pedals different, boards vs pegs?

Only reason I can think of.

Yeah the boards have a completely different arrangement with a short arm attached to the splined shaft and then a brake rod and short pedal - all integrated with the boards themselves. Who knows, seems a bit odd but there ya go. 

I would say that the pegs brake works better - perhaps due to  more leverage.

Some footboard equipped bikes also have a longer arm on the backing plate (vs. footpeg bikes).

My '72 Eldo has boards which I think could be after market - though I have seen others wearing similar. It has the real long brake pedal - on the right, and a slightly odd alloy rocker for the gears on the left. The front depresses to give up shifts and the heel part is real short ... awkward enough as is that I've clamped a block of wood on it for now whilst I think about fabricating something better.

Mg Cycle still sell an aftermarket footboard kit that uses existing brake and gear pedals for footpeg loops at a reasonable $274.95, however if your this side of the pond the customs, vat, postage, handling and I’m sure I’ve forgotten something which all pushes the price up somewhat.

You can I believe also reverse the gear shift pattern to fall in line with most other bikes, info on Greg’s site. Although I’m now so use to my loops that any other gear shift is just weird, It may well be to late for me!

The standard rocker gearshift is longer at the front and short at the rear maybe no improvement but who cares they look good Wink. There are some NOS ones on EBay from the USA at eye watering prices - I made 3 offers all rejected and got one a lot cheaper elsewhere.
