Gimletbikes

Finally riding a big boys bike
I've taken a different tack on this headtube. The decal I got through ebay looked so cheezy. Just a modern printed logo on a square white sticker. The logo wasnt even well reproduced. I was disappointed. Call me naive. I found this kinda beat up metal headbadge that looks right. So I drilled & tapped some holes in this headtube and badged it proper. I like it.

Personally, I like seeing metal head badges on trikes and bikes rather than decals that can wear or peel off over time. Nice find on the badge! Awhile back I purchased a metal head badge to fit on a 12" circa-1930 American National tricycle I have. I knew the trike was an AN model by its design and was fortunate to find the replacement badge. The mounting holes matched up perfectly. Hate to see old trikes and bikes missing their name badge. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/american-national-head-badge.42363/

Wow, Dave, that's a really nice looking trike. That headbadge looks great! Love the adult touches like the truss rods & the saddle. Thanks for the kind words
