That bottom one is a Mercurio, a Méxican brand. I was unable to edit the last post.
The Kent, I pulled off a partial frame I found while cleaning up storm damage around an old coal company town, in southeast Ohio.

This is the seat tube, but identical to the head tube.



I still need to get some brass heads to finish this one off.

Heh. Just kidding. Here's the badge:



As far as I know, this is a rare one for Sekine, I'm thinking of cleaning it up and re-doing the paint so it looks nicer.
Gotta love how faded the original colouring is on that head-tube.

BTW, I think T-Mar told me a few years back that this is a 1980 Sekine RM-40.

Never seen that one, and Sekines tend to catch my eye...they had a thing for the headbadge. Nice.

Bog-standard compared to most of the other examples, but here's my '87 Tempo badge.

I'm not completely sure. It was on display in the Ritchey booth at the NAHBS. If I recall correctly, it was one of the first frames he built. A side view shot can be seen HERE.
