    Is this what led to the phrase "The Original Guaranty Bicycle Company"?

    ???? I'm hoping we get a lot of Information from this post. I was looking at my Badges one day and realized the two Badges were different. I thought they were both Guarantee Badges. I thought "COOOOL" Now I know why they had "The Original" on later Guaranty Badges. At least I think I know? Thanks, Barry

    They were in the same town and must have had some sort ? going on between the two Companies?

    Guarantee was the first to com along, the other was later. That's about all I know. I have both of those badges too. I'm sure there's info on this subject out there.

    Do you have a photo of your Guaranty Stutz Badge? I would like one better than my photo. I don't want to clean my badge up any, but would like to see a cleaner Badge. Thanks, Barry
