I am wondering if any one knows how or where to get a custom head badge made ? I can get vinyl cut & that would work . But I've put alot of work into my Neptune build & would like to get a proper looking brass badge made . I really am hoping to cause confusion this summer weather this bike is really a 1922 ?

Thanks , Boo

You might try googling the CABE (Classic Antique Bicycle Exchange). There's guys there that are writing books about head badges. If you can get one made they'd know where.

Etch it using Ferric Chloride, find a piece of brass plate, K&S Engineering has racks in most hardware stores with sheet brass. Cut to shape with a jewelers saw, then etch it. Search Google for "using ferric chloride to etch brass"

Thanks everyone ! Got em on the way !!!!! I used a guy on ebay , goes by Tajave , that I have had make custom engraved brass plaques in the past . Just contacted him , told him what I was looking for & supplied clip art from google for my design . Will be here in 10 days or less & only $8 ea shipped . Kinda have to work with the sizes & shapes he has on hand . But I think it will be just fine . Will post pics when they show up .
( ordered 2 just incase this bike gets lonely & needs a brother )
Thanks , Boo
