Whoa, those are some really cool head badges. I've only seen one of those before and I always regretted not buying that bike.

Picked up this pair of DX's with uncommon Hank & Frank badges.

Those badges are peculiar, don't appear to be stamped but etched. . I haven't seen an old etched badge before, not to say I know spit about badges b/c I don't, except of latter times, which I prob know less [grin]. Just saying: That's Weird. As if they were rebadged, more recent than when the bikes were made, like possibly for a used bike sale in 60's or so?

Pretty sure they are legit OE. When I still lived in Colorado I talked to the son of the original owner of a prewar lightweight with this badge years ago but couldn't seal the deal:

He claims it was purchased new from the shop and the bike had a vintage Berkeley license on it as well. The shop has been around since '25....

That's really cool having a set with the same interesting badges. I've got those guys in the book and I'm researching them now. Thanks for posting the photos. Barry
