    I am in the beginning process of a complete restoration of a 1971 A75V.  It is one on the 205 that were built to satisfy the AMA’s Homogenizations rule.  Yes, you can assume I am in the USA.  An after market grab rail was added at some point and is so doing the brace that supports the rear fender was cut away from the frame.  Ref. Replacement parts list 1971, Plate 10, page 26.  Can anyone tell me, is this brace common to all BSA’s of the period? If so, is there a source of BSA parts rescued from wrecked bikes?  The small brace would be easily fabricated, but even easier to simply weld an existing brace in place.    Thanks for the help.

    I have resolved the issue.  After examining as many BSA parts catalogs from the time period as I cold access, I did not find a similar brace on any other models.  I went to the metal store and bought a piece of steel that I will fab and have welded in place once I get everything removed from the frame.
