If that other loop looks good I might like to have it, mine is pretty crappy.

It looks perfect as I recall. Give me a bit and I will go out and bring it in the house to double check.

I don't know if it helps but here are some photos of mine (1971 T120 high frame).

I don't know how original mine is but it may help show how the rear guard brace is mounted.

NB mine does have a weld on the right rail just behind the shock mount. I don't know if this was a repair made at some point or was just how they made the frame.
