Howdy guys! I know someone has got to have a list of badges made at certain headbadge companies for people selling Schwinn bicycles or maybe a list that the different companies that distributed Schwinn's had etc.
Anyone?


Please PM me, email me at graydiana@att.net, call me at Home at 1-208-687-5319 or

That's like asking, how many gallons of water are in the ocean.
I'll bet that Schwinn didn't even know the answer to that question.
Truer words were never spoken! It's amazing!

I'd like to find as many as I can. I'm up to 252 pages in the book I'm working on and I don't want to leave any cool stuff that still may be out there to find, out of the book. Thanks guys! Barry

Was the Majestic badge from a mail order catalog or was it a hardware store brand?
The reason I ask, is because my 1946 Schwinn built Whizzer is badged Majestic, and I thought it strange that they sold a Whizzer kit.

I don't think it had anything to do with a Hardware store. Just another name Schwinn used. Barry

NEVER speak of the archives in such a 'public' manner!!!

I will never let you in the vault again!
The semi secret archives here show well over 200 so far, along with photos of Schwinn's with the badges. Just scratching the surface! lol

Are you guys counting the "Maurice Frank" Omaha badge?
He was the first Schwinn dealer in Omaha, late 1930's.
