    Custom head badges

    Breezed through forums and didn't find a topic on the subject.

    Edit:
    Rebuilding my Trek 1400. Looking to do a custom head badge as I
    have axis err (goes to show you where my mind is) access to cnc mills so possibilities are endless

    Red Baron powder with two slanted black stripes on the right fork (about midway)

    Edit:
    For the moment I've been screwing around with my initials. at about 1.5" x 2"



    Have any that you're proud of? Feel free to throw on some ideas.

    Hey there iit_architect!

    You'll find head badges on the first page of this website:

    www.pathlesspedaled.com

    Make sure you look thoroughly because the page is busy. Look on the right hand-side of the margins.

    Good Luck!

    - Slim

    Thanks for the lead Slim!

    Just was curious if any bf members had any work they wanted to showcase

    Appreciate some fancy work there and surely it will fuel my ideas

    I designed the Miyata headbadge on this page. http://www.headbadges.com/id74.html

    Still looks good on my bike after a couple of years. Prices sure have gone up.

    I was a hiker before becoming a cyclist. When I finished hiking the 46 ADK peaks, I designed a stylized 46, and had it tattooed on my leg.

    When I built up my first naked frame, I had it made in vinyl for the head tube.
