Seems the design is what makes a Rocket. From what I gather the ladies bikes were Alexander-built, but not "Rockets".
The ones I've seen have had Road King badges on them; have any ladies been found with the Rocket badge?

I was just up in Paris, Texas a couple days ago doing research on Alexander. From my survey of all the known girls bikes none are tagged Rocket. The girls that still retain badges are tagged "Road King." Interestingly, of the known scooters, reportedly none were originally badged; of the existing unrestored scooters, none in my survey have drilled holes for head badges. If anyone has more information on this please let me know. Kindly, Brant
