Im after 1 or both brackets that secures the front brake hoses to the ft mudguard on a LM1 and 2,

or even a photo to fabricate my own

I know I can buy aftermarket hose clamps but I want it to look original

I'm in Bath, UK

So that's what those holes in the mudguard were for! Big smile

Looks like bent thick wire or rod and a rubber grommet

Failing all else the above are available from Stein Dinse.
Loop Frame Guzzis use them to guide brake cables,Laverda used them for your application,hydraulic lines. They fit into 10mm holes. Before attempting to fit them pop them into a cup of very hot water to soften them. If you don't they are almost impossible to fit.
Gutsibits do a similar one for 8mm holes
A lot of MK 1's don't seem to have that feature at all

Regarding the wire loops that help locate the brake line onto the mudguards, I contacted Gutsibits and they found two second hand ones for me. They came with the rubber grommets as well.

It will not fool the Guzzi police.
That one goes under the tank to hold the end of the rigid brake line.

Reading between the lines, looks like you're going for originality, but on a T3 I recently looked over (to see what interesting mods the rider/owner had made to it - there's always something to see, eh?) they had added two 'off the shelf' p-clip type hose guides to the frame holes just under the steering head/lock-stop. Commonly used as mounting point for the crash-bars and/or front indicator bracket (LM)?

Looked a very tidy solution, I thought.

Hope this helps.
From the top edge of the top loop to the bottom of the lower loop, it measures about 26mm. 
 
Yes, I know they're a bit rusty.Unhappy

This thread is reminiscent of an episode in "Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance" where the author's friend refuses to shim his handlebar clamps with strips of Cola can because they're not BMW-
issued. Something about form over function. LOL

Hardly. If someone has the opportunity to rebuild a renowned, classic motorcycle to as near original trim as they are able, it's not unreasonable for them to ask knowledgeable colleagues questions that help them establish just what was "original" or not. Particularly when there is a good chance that the orginality, in this particular context, can be achieved as cheaply and as easily as, for example, buying a p-clip at the local hardware store.
