I had the same problem with putting a tyre on my RS, no way would the bead pop in.
Eventually, since I have a bad back and it was getting serious, I took it to Kendal to a professional tyre fitter.
He couldn't do it either.

Returned to base.

I've always fitted my own bike tyres, and after giving in and going to a fitter only to find that he failed too, a rethink was in order.
So -- if you are in this situation, put a ratchet strap centrally around the deflated tyre and tighten it so the middle of the tyre is slightly constricted. Then apply an air line. Because the tyre cannot increase in diameter it pushes out sideways, and pops on the rim. 

Best of luck with the Monza, I loved the one I had in the Eighties -- after a BSA B31 it came as something of a revelation.
