Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Not stock, not a badge, just a sticker. Still, I loves it.

I agree, had Mike make a custom one for me with the "Steal your Face" lightening bolt. He also patina it for me. I think it looks sweet, but I already loss a screw and knowing my luck it is only a matter of time before the other one tries to jump out of its hole.

This is my bike KALAVINKA
It is a frame manufacturer that used very few badges in Japan.
It might be only an atelier here.
This design is a god of the song of the Buddhism.
The face flies about while singing bird's sky by the person by the body.
It is oriental headbadges
It's my Favorite

Other frame headbadges (NJS Keirin brands)

Perhaps, if I end MIXPRESION, I will sell this bicycle at Tokyo Jingu-Gaien

Tomity, I think the Kalavinka headbadge is my all time favorite.

Still love the one on my Pogliaghi though, unfortunately it's a sticker and not a badge.

That is a nice setup for the clamp-on rear brake. And I was relieved to see the clear rubber gaskets between the clamp faces and the frame. Whew.

This is one I made for my Rock Lob...had an early 90's headbadge from unknown source and then cut a Campy cog to fix...used amber shellac to make it all gold...
