    One of my favorite safeties. I wish my mom was still around so I could ask here where she found it.

    It was in a bad accident and the bike license had "donor" marked on it.

    My Meads

    I have an original paint Mead Crusader (1930 to 1933 ) which is in amazing condition (see photos).

    I also have a 1922 Mead Ranger which is partially assembled in my basement until I get time to work on it. I don't have any photos of that one but it is complete except for the elusive battery can.

    Over the coming winter I plan on getting two sets of Velocity P35 wheels (Velocity is now calling them Blunt 35) put together so I can go on some rides next summer.

    NICK-the cut ... sorry i am not responding to you via PM ... have tried that venue with others and it appears i
    don't know what the heck i am doin' when it comes to PM ... SO gentle readers ... i prefer direct e-m >>>>>

    hoofhearted121@yahoo.com


    PICKED that Mead Iroquois badge up at the Ann-Arbor meet in the mid-90's ... am not lookin' for the bicycle ...
    ... am predominately a badge collector .. been collecting unusual, exotic and motorcycle-named badges since '82.

    Have NEVER seen another IROQUOIS. If it has been on a bicycle .. it was on the rivet for about seven minutes.
    Generally, if a badge was issued in aluminum .. it has been previously issued in brass with nickel plate. The earlier,
    plated badge will usually be in an earlier design. i am always on the peep ... Ready-To-Purchase plan .. ONLY UNU-
    SUAL BADGES NEED APPLY.

    i pay the money, and am not lookin' for a deal. I WANT THAT EXOTIC BADGE, and nothing else will do !!!

    Paid $150 for that Mead Iroquois badge. If i ever would sell it .. my no-haggle price would be exactly what $$$ i have
    in it. Most folks in the hobby allow me to name my own price .. as my price is usually taller than what a seller would
    ask anyhoo. That's how i got some truly kick-axx badges. If i was lookin' for a good deal, i would stick with common,
    daily-seen badges and pay the usual ten bucks for them all day long.

    WHILE IT IS TRUE THAT my manner of purchase is hardly frugal .. i currently have ZERO BADGES that i would NOT
    put under glass in my collection. Not braggin' or complainin' .. not being a snoot or a "better than thou" .. my philos-
    ophy gets me the badges i want and i do not have to trip over the stuff that is seen over and over.

    i remain ... totally hooked on the badges Steve McQeen would have collected .. IF he had collected badges !!!

    NOW, LET'S GET BACK To Showin' Those Mead Bicycles !!!
