Headbadges - still attached to bicycles.
Below are some cool bicycle headbadges that were still attached to cool bicycles. These were taken at the last swap meet. I liked the wheeled wheel logo, very similar to the logo used by Campagnolo. The Gendron bicycle had a very interesting headbadge with a Star of David design. Gendron bicycles were made in the USA and in Canada, and were described as one of the largest US bicycle manafacturing company. It was the first I have ever heard of the company, they patented an early safety bicycle in 1891 and even later, in the late 1890s had a shaft drive bicycle.
