    74 R90/6 - left fork ear (headlight mount bracket)

    Is this a factory stamp to give clearance to the steering head lock or did prior owner somehow manage to dent the inside of this thing? The dimples almost look like a factory stamping die but??

    At $125 for a replacement I'm hoping its a factory thing.

    Greetings

    just saw your post so went out to the garage and checked my 74 R90/6 and it has a similar indentation on the port side so it must be factory made.

    Ditto, my '73 /5 has them too (with smaller headlight nacelle bolt holes).
