Looks like some kind of strengthening item. It uses the lower mounting holes in the engine (which are used for the rear brake m/c on later bikes and the 916 line) and then goes up to the swingarm mount point - maybe it's in an effort to reduce flex in the swingarm pivot? Doesn't look like it's adjustable at all...

Hi DaveB916

Here's a pic. of mine. It's largely as it left the factory. SP4 had its rear caliper above the swinging-arm originally. (SP5 was below though).

(Yours has additional alloy bracketry just ahead of the brake pedal too. What is it?)

If it was on an SS - I'd think that gold plate was for mounting the torque arm on and positioning the caliper on the underside of the disc....

DB4 and Saturno look nice as well


Cheers - Frank

On closer inspection I think you're right Frank. (The SP5 item is much less obvious than these ones though).

They're all over the place. Another one on eBay, too.

Rumored to be a really nice one appearing at a UK dealer in the not too distant.....

Has anyone ever dealt with Mdina Italia? They have some nice looking bikes on their web page. Not too far away either.
