I guess I should clean up the Raleigh, but it's a rider, not a looker. Definitely not a looker.

This is the only one that has a real head badge, though it's not original to the bike. The headbadge was sourced from another bike and impeccably restored by Drillium Dude to add a flourish to this one (the photo is also his, taken before I acquired the bike for my girlfriend):



I'll refrain from posting all the headtube decals that grace the herd, but I will post this one (from a 1980s Proctor, an Edmonton-built Canadian bike) - as I expect no one else is terribly likely to do so:

Wish it was closer up, but I need new pics. My fave bike out of my 3. My other cool one is a Lotus, but there was already that head badge posted earlier.

This is way cool! I haven't seen a Singer since maybe 1976. Did this come from Spence Wolf at Cupertino Bike Shop?

Thanks for that link, Gridplan.

Some very cool badges here folks. Keep 'em coming. Many here I've never seen before.

And pics of cat heads are OK D. Dude.

I have only one close up of a head badge and it is an off topic bike. Go figure.
