Hold That Tiger

Stumbled upon this cool rebuild of a '55 Tiger. Should be a good reference for my '55 Tbird. There are a lot of tips I wouldn't have thought of doing (and access to tools I don't have). I stumbled upon it trying to figure out what this bracket on my frame does. The parts book is missing a few things like the chainguard, the head steadies, and whatever this is. I assume it's for the airbox? I'm not sure I'll be putting an airbox in it, but whatever it is, I'm missing the right side.

Also I've been told these fork lowers are incorrect.

And whoever put a unit parcel rack on the gas tank.

Needless to say, the list of needed parts keeps growing and growing. I only plan to get a couple things this year. I'm assuming this bike will take me at least 5 years to build up if I concentrate just on it.

I would not worry about "original" on this one.
Just "respect its history." Makes the job easier.
too :-)
