    This badge is on a 1948 girls 26”. Anyone know any info on it. Bike is in SoCal. My guess is made exclusively for this shop. Oh, I now own a Blue Bird!!

    They were one of hundreds if not thousands of Companies that so Schwinn Bikes. Here you go!
    Back in the day, a Company could put their own badge on Schwinn or other brand bicycles.
