i think you frame is 1999/2000

this is based around
1/ the old style front end.
2/ the one piece linkage.
3/ and the horizontal back end, looks on the photo's like no "V" Brake mounts?

if you look closely you can see it in the pics. it runs back to just before the down tube comes out of the frame. i'll see if i have any pics of it. it might be a repair? but it looks right like it should be there. im starting to think its a repair to be honest but a good one.

it might be a home-made frame saver to stop the forks hitting the frame ? my san andreas has a bolt on one 8)

it looks like some sort of reinforcement. really well welded in. I have been out to the shed and taken pics. I'm ashamed at how dusty it was :oops:
like you said i have never seen it on any other m1 :?

i hope its not a home made repair as it follows all the main weld lines. i doubt if anyone welded it they re-temperd the frame thus leaving the head tube ali soft as cheese :?
