    I have had this one for five years now and I still love finding parts to make it better. My ongoing project, I hope it will be in the family for a long time.

    She's a beauty. Is the u-shaped fork brace over the front fender standard on the S or is that aftermarket?

    no fork braces were standard on any models, beyond the big alu one that was used for fender mounting.
    looks to be a Luftmeister (but i could be worng on that aspect of it)

    Thanks for the input. I'm still learning and just wanted to know. I have many more questions than answers. I like them.

    Quite right. The original CC Products fork brace consisted of 2 bent tubes spanning the forks with stamped plates connecting in front and behind each fork slider. Telefix also made a fork brace that essentially clamped onto each fork slider and spanned the forks with a bar. It was popular with the early K's. Luftmeister made swingarm braces but I don't think they ever made a fork brace. Not sure about that though.
    73 R75/5-36mm Dell Orto pumpers, lightened flywheel, polished crank, single cam chain/sprockets, Carillo rods and wrist pins, Wiseco pistons, custom profiled cam, 5 speed, LWB swing arm, ATE disc in front, Progressive front Works rear-yeah, it sh!ts and gits.

    Bikerfish:

    F.Y.I. the stock fork brace/fender mount is not aluminum but is stainless steel.

    It probably wasn't/isn't stiff enough for the aggressive rider but I don't think it is as flimsy as it usually gets credit for being.

    Grab one sometime (off the bike, of course) and try to bend it. It ain't no beer can.

    Am I in favor of supplemental fork braces on early Airheads? Sure!
