Bicycles manufactured in the 1950's had a frame cover, something you don't see these days.
The reason I am particularly fond of bicycles from the early 1950's is that nearly everything is over-engineered. In the 1960's cloth and leather materials were replaced by vinyl with adhesive backing. Although they served the same function their quality and appearance were not as nice as the cloth (suede) and leather covers from the 1950's.
Frame covers are a simple item that adds a nice accent and a touch of class to the frame.
Kindly note that the next post will be the Japanese version of this one. I will be back with a new post in English soon. Until then "stay trued" and "happy wheels".
