WTB: Urago Headbadge

I have been looking for a Urago headbadge now for quite some time but, even with alerts galore, cannot find one to save my life.

I come, with hat in hand, to my people. Although it's a long shot, I'm looking for a Urago headbadge similar to the attached image.

Does anyone have, or know of one, I may repurpose?

IIRC the fastener spacing for this version is 35mm.

I don't have one, but the art doesn't look terribly complicated. Would you be interested in a reproduction?

Oooh -- an offer from RHM to craft a head badge should not be taken lightly: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...rque-born.html

I'm getting her put back together now so it shouldn't be too much longer before the unveiling.
