    I would like to know if this badge was ever used on a Schwinn? If so I really really really want one for my '38 canti deluxe Autocycle!

    Dixieland badge

    When I bought the Dixieland badge it belonged to a local Schwinn collector that was selling out. I bought everything I could fit in my truck.
    At the time I wasn't collecting badges, but began shortly after that. Another badge collector had been sending me some of his doubles for free, so I sent the Dixieland to him.

    I later acquired most of his collection and got it back.

    It doesn't appear that it has ever been attached to a bike.
    The hole spacing is the same as Schwinn.

    I still have very little knowledge about badges in general, just the obvious ones that have the bike manufacturer's name on them. From what I can find on the forums and internet, there's not a lot of information in one place.

    Can't wait to get a signed copy of Patric, Ed and Scott's book of knowledge when it comes back from the publishers.

    Hello, I've found over 200 Badges used by Schwinn. The model has nothing to do with the Badge name. Who ever was selling the bikes could sell them with known Schwinn Badge names or what ever name they wanted to name it. My favorite name is Kalamazoo Supercycle. They were a Bike shop in Kalamazoo that sold Schwinn's. Barry

    I don't know of anyone that has seen one on a bike. In fact that is the only one I know of. Maybe @aasmitty757 can shed some light on this one. V/r Shawn

    I have not personally seen one on a bike . I acquired this badge in a local collector buy out, was one of two loose badges he had. It seems like another Cabe member found another badge like this one in a lesser quality.

    I've got quite a few photos of pre-war bicycles that maybe you could help me figure out who owns them? Some of them may just be unknown but I'm sure putting them in the book. Barry

    This badge came on a 1932 Schwinn Camelback I had restored. It's labeled Tiger flyer sold by the Gamble's department stores. 20171126_113419.jpg

    I don't know how rare this is, but I've only seen a few.
    A nice fellow named Brian on the Cabe sold it to me. I've been looking for information on the Company?

    I thought this was kind of cool! Two versions of the Schwinn Bolles badge!
