Here's that '42 Nonpareil that Frank gave me.


And, for the record, this is (or was) a Jetter 10 speed from the 70s. Claimed to be made in Pittsburg.

Oh yeah, while we're getting a few American bikes off our chest, here's a Firestone that I had for a while.

And I can't bear to leave out my Roadmasters.


And here's an Old Hickory that I saw at the Old Spokes Home in Burlington, VT. I think it's actually structural.

I don't know much about this other than that it likely came from Italy in the 1950's but it's pretty cool looking. Let me know if you know who made it.

That is cool. Romulus and Remus feeding at the she wolf's teets. Great head badge logo. Never seen that brand before.

1920's CCM Massey-Harris Silver Ribbon. It's a one piece helix. Shame about the repaint.

Does a '93 Robinson BMX count as C&V?

It's not really vintage, but just love that Globe put a little baseball card holder on their badge, so you can put in pics of your primary passenger, or Chewbacca or whatever...

Bump, had to dig this one up from the cellar:



La Nordiste, made by Dangre/Starnord in, guess what, northern France.
And this is a truly amazing blog on headbadges/history of cycling (for Dutch-speakers, but with plenty of pics)

Here's one you don't see every day, the early Holdsworth head badge. This one was on a 1951 frame I had in my possession for only a short while.

I'm selling a Garlatti for a friend and while it isn't the world's nicest bike it does have a pretty cool head badge. I'll post a pic of the complete bike in the mustache bar thread too since that's what it has on it now.
