I am needing to restring my wife’s 1897 skirt guard on the rear and the chain guard. Does anyone have good pictures that provide lacing patterns?

Thanks in advance

Maybe find an old Sears Catalog (they may have closed).

The above shows how it was done in the 20th century.

Here's one I did. I've done a couple this way and they've came out nice IMO. There's a small strip on the underside of the fender for the loop. View attachment 907305

Those look awesome. Can you provide any details on how you did it? Did you put loops on the fender and then bring another series of string to the loops? What type of string/ twine did you use?

Ed, if you know the brand and approximate year of bike you are lacing the chain guard and fender for, it may be helpful to first find the bicycle manufacturer catalog image for that bike so you can use that as reference as to how your particular bike should be laced originally. I did that for a bicycle of mine and it took a while to figure out the correct string pattern from the catalog image but eventually I got it correct.

I used a natural cotton twine from my local hardware store. If you look closely down where the fender attaches near the crank, you can see the inside, or bottom side of the fender. That should help a little.
