Excelsior ...

For several months I've made it a habit to notice the head badges on bicycles.
Old bikes are in vogue and I spot some interesting makes.
When I accidentally discovered The World Cycles I hit the jackpot.

I'm off to London for a week.
I'll post stuff from abroad when I can.

Now you have me interested in photographing bike badges. It looks like an interesting project.

Great find! A quick Internet search revealed that Schwinn was making an Excelsior model way back in the 1930s.

You've found a beautiful head badge. I've also been impressed by them, but haven't seen any interesting ones in ages. Thank you for the post.

Very nice Wayne. I'm somewhat of a bike nut and you found a gem there.The Schwinn brand is now owned by Dorel of Quebec but I don't know if they do anything with the name. They also own Cannondale and have certainly done a lot with that brand turning them from a loser to a winner.
