fork brace on an 821100I

Good Wednesday to all
I have noticed that on 83 or later there is an anti dive front break system and an added fork brace.
does anyone know of an (of course Inexpensive) after market fork brace?
I ordered progressive springs front and back and would also like to add a fork brace while i am at it.
thanks

Unless you find a used one on ebay you can expect to pay around $150 for a Superbrace.

OUCH !! I will have to do a little digging. A fork brace is not high on my list of priorities. I had a chance to buy a front end off a 1200. should have done it. I figure adding the progressive springs front and back will help the squishy-ness a lot. Maybe i will be satisfied. I'd like to get to be a good enough rider to join a M/C Drill team....I don't know if there is still a gold wing club around here that does that. I seen them perform at the local fair years ago. Back when i was riding Harley s'. It was very impressive and looked fun as hell. I have participated in various rodeo's in the HOG Chapter years gone by.. that was also fun.
thanks for Info.
