Into this.....
I like it!
Because displaying a large quantity of these badges requires a choice area to view them all and a large enough display case or wall hanger can be cumbersome. This is a great idea.

It's all about the Tanklights!!

How did I run out of room so fast?

Changed out the chainguard. Not sure what else I can do to this one to improve the appearance. I like the rusty frame and green. It was originally red and was tastefully repainted. Even the hand pinstripping was done very well.
Now to add the chain, find a tank ($$$), dropstand clip and a rear rack....and enjoy the ride.

I live for the CABE
Currently building an early fifties Snyder Monkey Warts Hawthorne springer bicycle. I've had the majority of the frame for twenty five years or so, and finally straightened the forks, and found a matching rack, chain guard and crank assembly to get her rideable. I'm putting these incorrect drop centers on the bike because they match the faded red-to-orange paint so well. I understand now why so many of these bikes I see on the web look to have bent forks: the springer doesn't do much to reinforce fork strength here, and it'll be interesting to see if it has any real effect on the ride.

Still haven't located matching orange fenders yet, but it's time to get it on the road.

Decal on an old bike

Slow process on an Iver since I want to preserve it's original color.
Luckily it's mostly black.

I touched it up around the area with enamel black but not sure what I can do to preserve the decal
that is almost a century old or just leave it alone & hope for the best. :p

Whoops ! a pre-phantom front fender ?

Mostly cleaning, polishing & replacing with original parts this 'early 50s red.
and for those who are wondering...
(it's a bell ringer & bike chain around the handlebars, rack not correct, tires are blackwall "Schwinns"
not original but still nice...there might be more things...who knows.)

Although the rear fender is original, the front one is a repo.
I thought I had found an original replacement which is in great shape.
