What is this part called? It looks like its a thin piece of metal that connects the clipon mounts to the fork.
Previous owner must have bent it when he dropped it on its side. The bike is a 2020 Continental GT.

I was able to find it after a bit more searching through OEM part websites (didn't even see it in the service manual).
Its called a drop link. Now the problem is I can't find a replacement for it that will ship to the US.

X2, a vise would straighten that out in seconds. Or make new ones out of a strip of 1/8" thick by XX wide strip steel like found at any hardware store.

It's just a close-in assembly locator and not needed at all; you could leave it off, most clipons need nothing like that to function correctly. Measure clipon mount from top of fork to it and repeat same distance on the other side and the bonus is you now have custom clipons to put wherever you want them.
