Gday steve. Could I see a pic of your whole
bike? I have a 1920k but its far from a 100
point bike too lol. I fitted a later delux
chain guard on mine as I just dont like tte
look of the enclosed cchain guard plus it looks
like a pain as well lol. Here is a pic of my

....and her's a picture of the lower chain
guard bracket. Now for the disclaimers:
1:I had no information on what the chainguard
brackets should like like so this is my
interpretation of what was needed. It is
probably wrong....
2: Anyone with a Model K enclosed chain guard
will know what a fiddle it is to get it on and
off. So how do you check chain tension easily?
I fitted an inspection hole and cover but
that's probably not on an original....
3: The chain guard is very open around the rear
axle area so if it rains, water can get into
the chain guard (yes, I ride it and here in the
UK that means we get wet - frequently!) Rather
than have the chain running in a water bath, I
fitted a drain plug - not original....
4: The clip on the exhaust pipe is my
interpretation of what was needed so is
probably not right either.
5: Yes, it's probably the wrong shade of blue.
As I have said on many previous posts, this
bike will never get anywhere near 100 points.
In fact it'll never get anywhere near a judging
ring anyway. But I like it...
Good post this - lots of people putting little
bits into the puzzle means we should eventually
get a prety full picture - thanks and well done

Just to put my 2 cents worth in, Whenever I
talked to Dick Winger about what defines model
K form a Deluxe He always said the chain guard
lug on the top right hand side of the rear
frame leg makes it a K.
