What is this part?

I should be picking up a Carabela bike this weekend that is fairly complete with the exception of some chrome trim. One thing I noticed missing attaches to the frame just below the swing arm.

Is it a spring loaded chain tensioner with a pulley?

Re: What is this part?

Shouldn't the tensioner idler pully be on the underside of the bottom run of chain?

You'd think so if the chain is meant to be lifted , but , these tensioners seem to 'push' the chain down to maintain tension .

Either way does the job as all that's needed is to help keep slap to a minimum .
