It's a frame brace. Common on early boxer racers all 'round the world.

Thanks for all the wonderful pics you put up.....

Do you know what it stopped or was for ?..
My 90s never shook her head, did a lot of travelling on her and between trips it was used as a paddock bike.
Never felt her flex.

It was to stop the frame flexing. It connects the swinging arm mount with the steering head better.

It may not be noticeable on the road, but on the track those frames flex pretty bad.

Lake Harry Ruin in the mid 80's. A bit of fencing wire can fix just about anything.


Same bike the following year


A couple of sidecars built in the garage at home. Late 80's
