Hi everyone,
Does anyone have a chainguard available, or know a source?

The A7 frame looks the same as my 1950 A10, so an A10 guard would suffice.

The rigid A10 has a lower chainguard as well; is the A7 meant to have one?

Thanks,
Richard

This is a scan from an original brochure of a 46/47 model, hopefully you can see in the pic that it does have a lower guard.

I had a 1950 Star Twin and that had a guard similar to the A10 but didnt have the bottom "U" shaped piece that bolted to the lower frame rail. There was no lug on the frame for it to bolt to.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Hi Brian,
Thanks; never seen that brochure before.
The upper and lower guard are same as my rigid A10; now to find them!
Cheers,
