    Yeah, name your kid that.

    Quite the similarities:
    I assume the Ludwig and Henderson bikes were made by Schwinn.

    I saw an ebay ad on the left side of TheCabe forums for a Henderson badge like this:

    and I saw this badge on Flickr Head badge group

    Schwinn owned the Excelsior-Henderson Motorcycle Company and put the names on their bikes. Barry

    Here is a Colson with that Ludwig badge on it that Pedal_Junky posted back in May 2017.
    I've also seen that Ludwig badge on Columbia / Westfield bicycles.

    There were a bunch of nos Ludwig badges on ebay about 10 years ago. I got one cheap. Ludwig would be a (slightly) better name choice, than Schwinn's founder, Ignaz!:D
