Default Re: A Mixte framed motorised bicycle for a lady.

Nice project. My favorite skirt or coat guards have an art deco look to them and were made for 1930's to 1941 Elgin step through models. The first one is a 1939 I built a couple of years ago with my first stab at a sidecar utilizing a modified kiddie trailer. The second one is in progress and is a 1934 model with a Tomos moped fork, 66cc engine, expansion exhaust and will have a 3 speed SBP shift kit when leaves appear on the money tree. The guards are like poetry, suggesting movement and speed. This model was made for almost ten years and was very popular. There are still a number of them around in the USA and come up on ebay now and then.

Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
