Need Picture of "SEARS Ted Williams" head badge

Have a Franken Ted Williams step through thats decal for the head badge was in such bad shape I could barely make it out - If someone has one of these bikes I could sure use a picture of the Decal Headbadge...

Maybe you could make a decal of this for a Ted Williams "head" badge:

FYI: Free Spirits not made by Puch had the same logo, but without the "Made in Austria" bit.

I did not know this - I saved this step through from a pile of bike remanents and after feeling the weight and make of the frame decided to put it back together - It had the Made In Austria as part of the logo - I have been totally impressed by its ride - This is the one my boys grab when in for a weekend cruse of the neighborhood... Oh - Its a sleeper - Very fast...

Let me check my archives. I may actually have a vector file for the head badge. I'll try to get back to you today or tomorrow.

I rebuilt a Ted Williams Puch Free Spirit last year and it really was a nice riding bike, I couldn't keep my son off of it.

Tough one to sell though with the "Sears" stigma attached to it, I've currently got a Puch Bergmeister on the stand that has a lot of the same frame cues as the Free Spirit but with (in my opinion) a cooler paint job .

You might also take note that the original request was made in Sept 2011, though the info will still be helpful for posterity. Here's a pic of the head badge on my Puch-made TW FS:

This is the 1965 Sears Ted Williams Head Badge.
