Does anyone collect head badges from bikes? Just wondering, some of them are very unique and beautiful.

The bicycle museum in Ohio has several hundred. Most are mounted on 6 foot long wood poles. While the museum has many unique bicycles I personally found the badges to be the most interesting part. This place is worth driving to if you find yourself anywhere near the area in Ohio.

Yes, I have a collection of about 12-15. Some are really interesting and some are plain. Most of them my dad took off of junk bikes he finds at yardsale but a few were purchased on ebay. I bought a Merlin sticker kit for my wife's mountain bike and picked up a headbadge at the same time. I also purchased the sterling silver IF badge. I was going to put it on my Crown Jewel but it would not have covered the sticker badge that is under the clear coat.
