What is this?

This pin is on the drive-side only of a 1985 Tange 1 frame. What is it for?

To hang your chain when you remove the rear wheel.

Braze on chain hanger. Slide that upper half of the chain you got there over the top.

I donít use it too often, but very helpful whenever the rear wheel comes out. I wish more of my bikes had them.

But be sure you don't forget to un-hook the chain before you ride away.

It comes in handy if your bike lacks rack/mudguard eyelets, to keep the rack-mounting clips from sliding down the stays.
