I'm sad.

I found a totally cool copper handlebar bell with all incredibly detailed engravings at a tiny little curio shop in Glasgow, Scotland last month. I was planning to stem mount it to my Shogun rando build. The only problem is, we've searched through the suitcase over and over and over again and it's just not in there. It's the one single cycling thing I purchased to bring back stateside and it's gone. Waaaaa!

Those are some of the coolest bells I've seen, djkashuba.

I don't have any bells to show that would rival yours, but I have a prewar Klaxon horn on my Armstrong. It sounds like a duck in heat.
(-Not exactly what you were looking for, I s'pose )

Bike Bells or Beautiful Belles...I think the bike bells are more in my league.

I'm currently looking for a decent bell for my bike. Thanks for posting some good pics of coolness to strive for.

That sucks! Thanks for sharing, though. You've given me the idea to make sure I pick myself up a little bike souvenir whenever I travel.

The Vincent Tours one is awesome - I love it. The older the bell, the more I like it (seems that holds true for so many things).

Some bells have gotten very expensive.
