ARTHUR R. DENBIGH, or LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND.

PROTECTOR FOR CYCLE-FRAM ES.

SPECIFICATION forming' part of Letters Patent No. 629,667, datedJ'uly 25, 1899. Application filed May 25,1899- Serial No. 718,187. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ARTHUR REEoE DEN- BIGH, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at Liverpool, in" the county of Lancaster, England, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Protectors for Cycle-Frames, of which the following is a specification.

The enamel or other parts of cycles are very liable to injury through transit in a railwaytrain or during storage with other cycles or elsewhere, thus greatly spoiling their appearance and deteriorating their value.

The present invention has for its objectto avoid this defect and to providea ready means for protecting such parts of cycles from injury that are most exposed.

The invention will be understood from the following description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure lis a general view of my invention; Fig. 2, a cross-section.

The invention consists in providing guards which can be applied to a cycle or removed when required and which will be found a most useful accessory to any cycle to keep it in good condition. in Fig. 1. They are made in lengths and are by preference of felt or other soft or nonscratching material A, with metallic springs B or clips on the outside riveted at intervals throughout each length of the felt or other material. These springs or clips B are so bent or formed transversely into segmental circular form as to bend or clip the felt A or other material around the members of the cycleframe or other parts. The ends of the springs are turned up slightly, so as to avoid scratching, while at top the rivets are embossed at C to form a depression on the inside, a rivet being passed through both felt and spring and riveted underneath in the depression. By this means,therefore,the rivet-head is kept clear of the enameled part, and so avoids.

scratching. I

In use the guards having been cut to length are pressed onto the parts which are required to be protected, such as the horizontal and One of these guards is shown and the felt preventing any scratching taking place. Each length forms a good protection against the enamel getting scratched, as is so liableto take place during transit in a railway-train or during storage with other cycles, and the present-invention will therefore be found a most useful accessory for those who desire to keep their cycles in good condition. The springs being placed at intervals along the felt and not close together enable the felt to be cutexactly to the required length.

These guards can be applied to any part of the cycle, either the handle, rims, crank, mudguards, &c., the springs in such case being made in such form as to clip the required part.

In this specification I have referred to the clips being of springy metal; but it is obvious that other springy material might be employed, such as celluloid, or, in fact, any other material which is suitable for the purpose. Furthermore, instead of riveting the clips to the felt sewing or other means of attachment might be employed. The guards, moreover, can permanently remain on the cycle in bad weather, as they will not in any way interfere with the movement of the machine.

I declare that what I claim is--- 1. A guard for protecting the tubes or other parts of cycles from injury, consisting of felt or other suitable non-scratching material out into lengths and adapted to be wrapped around the part of the cycle required to be protected, and spring-clips secured to the felt on the outside and adapted to hold itin place so as to protect the enameled or other part from being scratched, substantially as described.

2. As an improved article of manufacture, a guard for protecting the tubes or other parts of cycles from injury which consists of lengths of felt or other suitable non-scratching material and made into the form of a split tube and metallic spring-clips riveted on the outside thereof, at intervals, substantially as described.

3. As an improved article of manufacture, a guard for protecting the enameled tubes or other parts of cycles from injury, comprising in its construction asplit tube of felt or equiv- IOO aient material, spring-clips applied on the my name, this 10th day of May, 1899, in the outside 0fv the tubing and partially embracpresence of two subscribing witnesses. :ing the same, rivets uniting the clips to the felt tubing which rivets are embedded in the DENBIGH 5 tubing so as not to project beyond the inner Witnesses:

surface thereof, substantially as described. G. O. DYMOND,

In Witness whereof I have hereunto signed WV. H. BEESTON.
