Posted by: Craig TITLE: BALLOON:   lacing a rear fender
I recently aquired a Girls elgin with the lacing holes in the rear fender. Does anyone know what type of hardware/method of holding the lacing tight. There are no obvious hooks on the frame or the chain guard. what type of material was used?

I appreciate the information, I can easily recreate the bracket with the springs.

Thanks,

There were little brackets which fit on the rear axle. These brackets usually have small springs on them (to keep tension on the guards).
The guards may have been wire or heavy cotton string.
