Bike is a Trek 1000 with the stock SRAM cassette.
Actually since you're asking a question about the 'plastic thingy', I'd say leave it on. The folks who are embarassed by it, know exactly what it does and how to make up for it's absence by playing with the limit screws. On the other hand not knowing your rear derailleur as well, mtb or road bike you may as well leave it on and enjoy the ride...
