Headbadge Hunter: Rescuing the Beautiful Branding of Long Lost Bicycles

http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/headbadge-hunter/

Jeffrey Conner doesn’t remember exactly how he acquired his first bicycle headbadge during a post-college gig as a bike mechanic in Seattle, but he does know it was an English-made, Rocket-brand badge someone had spray-painted blue. The metal tag had originally adorned the head tube on a bicycle frame, and like other headbadges, it was probably the only surviving part from an older bike that had been mistreated or left out in the elements to decay.
