Bicycle stick faces

Thought I would post a photo of these cool cycling stick faces that I purchased back in the early 90's. They had three designs and I have two of them. They were meant to be applied to the front of your head tube, sort of like the head badge manufactures put on their bikes. The one with the open mouth is called the "screamer" and the evil looking one is called "the Gargoyle". The company was called Bikelangelo out of Santa Barbara California. Really beautiful craftsmanship. I believe each piece was hand painted. They were $19.99 apiece back then. Maybe others here on the forum have some or even on their bikes. Thought you would enjoy seeing them. I may have a advertisement for them in one of my old Winning magazines.

I like the gargoyle. The other one should be called The Bug Eater.

I think they may still be in business making stem caps.

Last Instagram post in July of 2018, and their web hosting expired in June of this year... so pretty likely gone.
