Making an RT2 chain guard #1
There have not been any chain guards for sale for a while and I cannot bring myself to pay US$150 plus shipping anyway. So I decided to make one. An old steel shelf provided the right thickness and strength of steel. Photos show progress so far. I will post a final pic later when I have the kinks smoothed out and the silver paint on.

Really nice work.

IF it isn't one thing, it's another.
