I believe this one is new to the thread:



My apologies for the terrible picture quality - this was in the stand at a friend's house over the weekend and my phone is all I had on me. The lens is scratched...

Mario Ruggeri, P. Civitanova head badge. Not sure if it's for a bicycle, although it does fit a standard head tube and has mounting holes on each side.

Here's a collage of a few from a CV ride in Chicago during April of 2014.



And a closeup of my "faux vintage" Hunqapillar

definitely a "keeper of the flame."

Can you be more precise about the Vitus? What sort of tubing? There is a Vitus head badge, but I have not seen it on a 979 Aluminum frame. I made one for myself anyway and put it on my 979. I'll post it if you wanna see it. It may or may not have ever been on a 979.

question for the teeside experts -

owned an rra like the one shown in the upper left. its steerer was only 34mm longer than its head tube. not enough room for a record hs which needs a minimum of 38mm. wonder how someone managed to mount this. perhaps they machined the heck out of the head tube and crown...

Headbadge from my '52 Hercules King. I've seen a couple similar ones floating around the internet, but never this exact badge.
