When you say rattle, do you mean this?

FAQ: Why do my front brakes make a whirring / cricket sound?

Or does something actually vibrate or shutter when you apply the brakes?

By left brake I assume you mean left brake handle which is the rear brake. I also assume by rattle you mean vibration when rear brake is engaged such as at a stop light
This is normal and what you are feeling is engine vibration being transmitted to tout hands/body thru brake to frame

Thanks Everyone: I'm glad it not something to worry about. Just crazy seeing the vibration when stopped and the little windshield shaking so much more whe the rear brake is pulled in
