Just picked up this bike. Have not done anything sept take some pic's. of it. First question is : Would the Rear Rack be Correct for this Bike ? 2nd Question : Would this Chain Guard have been a Factory Item as well ? These seem out of place to me. Serial No. is F 71282 Was Told it was a 1939 . Any help is appreciated .

I believe that's a universal chainguard+ The rack I'm not sure about . I think u should change both.

Patina seems to match very well if you ask me? The original paint color appears to match too. So I'd say they're correct. Could have been a dealer bolt on at the store. I have two shelbys with oddball racks and guards also that were not in any ad whatsoever but have original matching paint and patina. Who would take the time to match paint or add a rack or guard 40 years ago? And where would the original guard or rack have went. Killer bike. Swap the tires, tubes, service the hubs and RIDE IT!! Enjoy it!

I too am a firm believer that same model bikes can differ depending on when in production run they were built and circumstances. Suppliers could change or just running out of original parts. If it absolutely looks original, it more than likely is original to the history of the bike and I too would leave it. Great bike !

no dealer has racks and guards the exact color its factory might be 41 and a lesser model the war was starting and no manufacturer was making runs of parts they bought up lots of old inventory from accessory companies and painted them at factory using whatever they had when they ran out ..... not always dead on to literature
