FORK BRACE #1
Anyone out there know where I might get a Fork Brace for my 70 DT1c? Forks very flimsy takes very little wiggling to get forks out of alignment, is that normal? I don't remember them being this bad, but they had the braces

Just make sure the axle is tight & the clamp is pinching up the other end. then can only make sure the fork yoke clamps are tight & shouldn't be too bad. Front guard is a little help but not a lot. You're talking the steel lower sliders?, think they went alloy the following year. Used to be after market braces on ebay once upon a time.
Here's one for an AT1 but says 70--72 except 70 is steel sliders & 72 should be alloy so maybe it brackets on the same. Anyway--be too narrow for yours plus AT1 is !8 front--so forget that but take the pic to an engineer to get an idea maybe.

This looks like a homemade job . The bottom by the bolts is straight and doesn't have the convex for the forks to fit in.
Cut outs are not rounded, but squared. 4 bolt pattern.

What is your riding style?

Rick C. The DT1 pic looks like you'd be lucky if the brace didn't run into the high guard on a hard landing.? Looks good though.
