Several platefuls of vintage pasta. Due to image limit per post it will take several posts to get them all up. Not mine.

Wow, there are some impressive sight here! @juvela, that's quite a collection.

I don't think I saw this one here:

From my wife's MAP.

MAP by gomango1849, on Flickr

Also, I have a Silk Hope frameset that is a very long term project for me.

It's in quite a state of dis-repair, but a complete refinish by Chris Kvale will be the end goal.

Still have to choose a color scheme, but this will get you thinking about the brand.

Perfect Perforations

1410 OakWooD: The Silk Hope Dragon

The head badge looks like this one on CR.



I'll eventually need to see if Dale has any decal sets left....

Not terribly vintage, but absolutely unique, the head badge made for the Breezer bike presented to Pope Francis.

Landry's challenge headbadge

Imported from my CABE post.

WWII era badge. I grew up about 45 miles from this shop. An unused "badge" I picked up thinking it was a "nameplate" attached to something, but not necessarily a bike. It is 3" in diameter and if used as a headbadge it would nearly wrap around a head tube. Also, it is apparently made of brass and not easily bent, very stiff for its thickness. I only interpreted it as a headbadge when seeing it named as such on the Landry's website, otherwise I would not have posted it on this thread. I personally believe that if used on a bike it was mounted flat and not fit to the curve of the tube. Examining the website example it shows clear marks from being mounted to something, but still a flat plate. Maybe mounted on the side of a tank? I have not seen a photo and/or picture of any of their bikes; not sure how long they actually "built" bikes. It seems like that company was primarily a retail and service company and never actually manufactured any bikes just "recycled"/refurbished existing makes. I'm curious as to what was "custom built" regarding these bikes: frame modifications, components, paint/finish, and/or accessories. I have not contacted the business, not sure that their present personnel would have that knowledge.

"During World War II, Landry’s produces custom-built “Challenge” Victory Bicycles, made from refurbished frames and parts, to support local transportation — when gasoline and raw materials were rationed and bicycles were in high demand and short supply." from Landry's Bicycles website.

My worst headbadge mistake on the rust bucket S10S single speed project. I used painters tape to cover up the head badge and green I like so much while painting the chrome....didn't really think the painters tape through . I'm sure the years of sun and rain exposure had weakened the headbadge paint. I would have probably been ok on a bike that had been stored inside.
