    Monark Rocket circa 1956. After doing some mechanical restoring and preserving the original paint I had to find a chainguard since it didn't have the original. I found one the was a close match and went with it. New tires and tubes . I decided to go with blackwalls instead of whitewalls to make the salmon color pop. I had the Electra Zarape saddle that had been looking for a home so it found one.

    Too bad its a Monark, I have a correct chainguard in pink/black.Its off of a Firestone though. It may say Firestone special cruiser on it. Also have fender set that may be a bit nicer.
