Is it possible on a V50
to swap the gear and break peddles from one side to the other, i.e.
break on the left, gears on the right? Has anyone done it? If so so
I am told the Guzzis
were that way round once , and only got changed because the Yanks
insisted on it.

It’s certainly doable, not seen it done on a small block, but the principle is the same on any Guzzi.Aparently the yanks could not cope with braking with their right foot when driving a car, and using their left foot while on a bike.I find I can always tell which kind of vehicle I am using. Though I still sometimes have to think which way up the gearchange is, up for up or down for up.
