Spacer for the passenger grab handles (MG# 91181015)
Moto Guzzi V700, V7 Special, Ambassador, 850 GT, 850 GT California, Eldorado, and 850 California Police models
On models equipped with a dual seat, Moto Guzzi also fit chrome plated passenger grab handles. The front of each grab handle is secured to the top shock mount. The rear of each grab handle is secured to the frame at the same location as the rear seat tabs. A spacer is required at the rear mounting point to keep the grab rail neatly parallel to the frame (and to prevent twisting/bending/distorting the metal). Unfortunately, these spacers seem to always be missing. In fact, I've never seen an original one. Thanks to Kim Schick for verifying the following information from an original (originally zinc plated). Thanks to George Vignovich for confirming these measurements.
- ID: 10.3 mm (10.5 mm measured by George Vignovich)
- OD: 16.1 mm (16 mm measured by George Vignovich)
- Length: 15 mm
Were I to need these spacers, I would likely purchase McMaster-Carr part number 92510A802 and then drill the ID to fit a 10 mm bolt.
