Stock or Aftermarket Fork Brace?

Is this the OEM fork brace for a '77 R100RS?

Nope, looks like a San Jose brace. Stock was a piece of stamped sheet metal.

Yeah, rear shocks are Konis, dual plugged with Dyna III. Brakes are fantastic. Much better than my R90S. Maybe that's typical?

Haven't been inside the motor, yet, so I don't know if flywheel was lightened. However, if not, my first project will be an '81 or newer gearbox, clutch and flywheel.
