Hi to all, kind of new here- I do have a question.

Since the frame on the VT 500 C shadow is different then the one that comes with the VT 500 FT Ascot, ( known as the PC 10 )
I am considering a frame swap..

My question is as follows:  Is the US VT 500 FT (PC 10) frame identical to the european VT 500 E (PC 11) frame? I have compared a number of pictures, and they sure do look the same.

Thanks-

I don't know if we have any members that would know that answer.

Here are a couple of sites on the Euro version of the VT500. Maybe someone there can help.

I found an answer to my original question.

The frames are very similar, but not identical.. the major difference being where the front footpegs are mounted.

I ended up picking up a PC11 ( euro ) frame .. now I have something to do over the x-mas holidays..
