Chain Guard

ChainGuard

This bike caught my eye for a couple reasons: The patina on the chain guard represents years of utilitarian use for commuting through the elements and the chain guard in and of itself. This chain is encapsulated as to not get any grease on your slacks while you are riding to work or home from the store. A feature you don’t find on modern bikes because it would weigh too much. These photographs speak to me because they represent the modern day incarnations of the history of the bicycle.
