You've got a long bar, it's called the stanchion.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

And a length of scaffold pole ;D Imaginative use of the council drain cover (almost a slip gauge fit for the Stanchion clamp) may be be the solution. Waiting for night fall..... ;). A Norton commando stanchion is the perfect tool.....sacrilege I know.

Update. The CB550 1977 F2 needs a 3mm shim to safely clear the lock stops and bottom yoke. Unfortunately this means the headlamp brackets don’t fit correctly. Just to further reinforce Triggers observations, to make them fit correctly shim the bottom bearing and mill out 6mm from the head stock for the top bearing.

I’m going back to all bearings.... ;D
