Brace yourself

Norman Hyde’s Hinckley Bonneville fork brace

Fitting a fork brace not only beefs up the Bonneville’s 41mm diameter front forks, but also gives the front end of the British twin a more purposeful appearance.

CNC-machined in the UK from solid aluminium alloy, the Hyde fork brace is light, stiff and has a satin finish that blends with the bike’s styling.


Hyde designed the fork brace so that it could be fitted without needing to remove the forks. Should owners wish to fit a Hyde front mudguard too, the underside of the fork brace has tapped holes into which it may be firmly screwed.

Norman Hyde’s Bonneville SE fork brace sells for £186 including VAT.
