    Fork Brace

    Looking for a place to buy a fork brace for my '71 CB500. Anybody have any ideas? I've searched and searched and can't find anything. I've found one for a 450 on eBay. Will it work? Thanks in advance.

    I"m looking for a chart that gives physical constraints or dimensions and crosses them over to an application.

    assuming you're not racing it, you could simply grab a spent fender on egay and remove the blank from the mount. unless you're lookin' for some sexy after market billet type shit, that's the factory brace.

    the front ends are pretty close to those used on the cb550K in 1974 and 75, one off of those bikes should work.
