develop in due course and will see new ideas as they come to
The pictures below
show the new steering column cover attached to the new
Here you can see the new
style steering column that totally replaces the old Citroen 2CV
column. Note the upper u/j, in fact there are 2 u/js. We still
need your donor 2CV column though as we weld the original spline
to the lower end of the lower column. The scuttle shown in these
pictures is the aero scuttle which costs an extra £45 to the
standard scuttle which is priced in the initial kit.
Here can be seen
the grp cover which encloses the steering column. This cover is
available as an extra fitment, at cost. To the left (right as
you look at this shot) of this the fuel tank will bolt down.
These two shots show an aluminium dash blank with just a glove
box cut out. We have a grp glove box insert, which is extra.
This enables you to fit instruments of your choice. Instruments
tend to be 80mm in diameter, in fact our MG3 dashboards are
specifically drilled for 80mm Moto Guzzi instruments. The dash
blank is an additional £45. You can also see the difference
between the standard Citroen 2CV steering wheel (hideous!) and a
smaller Mountney steering wheel fitted with one of our aluminium
bosses attached to an Astrali splined boss. You will need an
Astrali boss (available from us for £20). The modern Mountney
bosses are ugly!
On the left is the Astrali boss fitted to one of our modified
steering columns, with another shot of the Mountney wheel.
Incidentally, MSVA will not accept holes in the steering wheel
These two shots show the rear bulkhead fitted to the rear grp
cover. There are two cut outs which can be hinged. The standard
version of this bulkhead is plain 3mm aluminium. If you get a
circle polished version, that is a bonus, there is no choice in
the matter once the circle polished versions have gone. In any
case it is all behind the seat.
following shots might help you understand the chassis and
You can see in the shots above where you need to truncate the
standard 2CV chassis if you haven't bought a specially converted
after market chassis.
The shot on the right shows the extended "Knife edge" connecting
rod. Note the bolt holes enabling the body frame to be bolted to
These two shots show the suspension components in close up. This
is the left hand side.
The shot on the right shows the right hand side and you can see
that the truncated arm and interlinking kit together with shock
absorber and extended bolt, have not yet been fitted.
The left hand shot shows the axle awaiting the truncated arm and
bearing, into which the interlinking kit is inserted to connect
both arms, even though of course, only the one is fitted and
takes the rear wheel, as shown on the right.
The last four shots show the rear end of course, open, prior to
fitment of the 5mm aluminium rear cover, the "barrel end", to
which the spare wheel is fitted. There is a lot of storage room
in the rear of the CV3. The centre frame is for the upper seat
belt location points.
