Chain Guard

The fender for 1937 is the same shape as 1938 but the lower bracket is different. The brake switch on a 37 is behind the bracket and the 38 the switch is on the front. Unfortunately nobody reproduces the 1937 bracket so I had to make one.

Fortunately I had access to an original paint 1937 chain guard.

Note the pin striping. Doesn't look very professional. Hard to say if it came from the factory like this or if it was added later. I've seen other factory pin striping for the late 30's and it has a similar look. With a little practice I think I can do better.

After months of work I finally have the chain guard mounted. Next Post: Speedometer.
