Beamish foot rests

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am looking for advice on the best way to lower the footrests on my 1977 Silver Engine Beamish.

Is it possible to buy a bolt on kit,are do you need to cut and weld if so does anyone make brackets ready to weld onto the frame.

Thanks in advance

Hi Abbifin,

To my knowledge no-one other than me had done footrests for the Beamish. I had a batch of larger ones made using the old mounts. I don't think anyone makes a bracket to lower them. You may like to invent something or commission someone to do it for you and have a batch made to sell as I am sure you are not alone. A guy who may help is Steve Wright at www.swpb.co.uk and he has a Mk2 Beamish himself.

As you know the footpegs on the Beamish are very small and extremely slippery, I had 10 pairs made of proper chrome plated pegs that were specific toe Beamish and nothing else, they had a much greater footprint and were a quality item. I had a job to sell the 10 pairs I commissioned selling them at the cost price of
