Front brakes/tires are right down there but should survive one more highway trip.
 
Were the two little cast in gussets behind the left cylinder deleted at the same number/change?
Not going off pics i have. The XS1B has the bracing in some pics but not in others, maybe there was a change mid year in 71 but then again there is no way to tell if those cases are original.

Pretty sure 2M's 1B has the bracing as well

This one doesn't have them and the engine side-case looks to be original
