Has anyone ever considered putting together a general archive/picture gallery with head badge rivet/screw spacing measurements? I'm looking for a 1895 timeframe badge which has 2 1/2 in center to center spacing, vertical holes.
I have a c.1896 left-hand drive Crawford with a badge for a Toronto bike shop. The spacing is 2.5 inches from the outside of the holes. You can see the whole bike if you search for Canadian Crawford. Assuming yours had a U.S. badge, it might have been similar in shape to this one but with different text on it. Hope that helps.
