I'm not sure, but I think this is some old, obscure American brand . . . .

My "stellar" iPhone photography strikes again. I'll have to try again with a better camera for close-ups at some point, I think.
I initially didn't bother taking a photo of this one because I thought Raleigh badges where fairly covered, but then I noticed the strangeness of the location area of the badge is just a lined pattern. Seems to be common for Canadian built Raleighs from the early '80s, at least on Mixtes that I've seen.

Just passed this one on the street. I'd never seen a Centurion head badge like this one before.

We might need a little more detail on this one Pogliaghi. Did you do the restoration work?

Hi Rootboy,

Yes I did the re-paint following the original color design which seems to vary according to style of badge. It comes off a 1957/58 Supercorsa M frame which I picked up locally. It was in very rough condition so I am re-painting it. Sadly exact style decals do not seem to be available, SSSink are the closest but they only sell to painters and not to individuals. What year is your Frejus?

Very nice looking job, Pogliaghi. In fact, fantastic looking! I'm wondering when they dispensed with all the dates listed across the bottom of the badge.
Yeah, I've noticed Frejus decals are all over the map. None match the ones on my bike exactly either, not that I'm going to replace them. Original owner told me he bought the bike in 1963. Also, an "M" model, or Professional, by then perhaps.
I'm wondering if some friendly frame painter would order you a set? Someone here might know of such a person.

Thanks Rootboy - much appreciated. I am guessing that the dates were removed from the badge around 1960 or so. Have you got a photo of your bike on this site - would love to see it. If someone might be able to help with the decals from sssink I would be extremely grateful!

The Smethwick Dunelt is pre WWII and the Birmingham example is pre Raleigh/1960



Here's a clean generic (Raleigh?) version...Dunelt badges were often found on the mudguards on both Birmingham and Nottingham bikes
