I live for the CABE
I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what this is. Raleigh made something similar but it looks like this bike begins with an “A”? And ends in “land”? I’ve done a bunch of searches online and can’t find anything. Can anybody tell me what that headbadge says? I can’t make out the writing. Also any other info on the bike would be appreciated. It looks rough but kind of neat. Would be fun to clean up the internals and ride it like it is. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Looks German to me! Hole in the front fender for a missing "stempel bremse"/ tire brake is a dead giveaway, the gabelhaube/ fork cover, the hub looks like a Torpedo from a distance, etc. At least the cranks look like standard cottered bits, not the dreaded glockenlager! US spec bikes from Germany turn up fairly often in the 1950s and later. I can't make out the headbadge.
