Found On:Vintage Lightweights, Track / Fixed Gear
Additional Info:

Repro on the head of a 1949 Sport Anglais, I don’t know why some frames had this badge rather than a metal one, perhaps customer choice? It also is used extensively as a seat tube transfer up until the bankruptcy in 1956.

Additional Info:

This head badge found on a 1952 Massed Start is interesting on two counts, 1st its cast in an aluminium/alloy rather than pressed tin, 2nd the rings are in yet another colour configuration (yellow top right) the badge is very light and has fine cast detail, perhaps reserved for the very top of the range model such as the Massed Start?

Name:Marlboro/Falcon version
Brand:Claud Butler
Country:England
Years:1980's
Additional Info:

Here is an original example of the last Claud Butler “Olympic rings” this was found on a 1987 Cape Wrath MTB built by Falcon. The badge is a version originally created by the previous owner of the brand, Holdsworth. But when the ownership transferred to Marlboro late 1985 in the Midlands, the ‘London’ from the ‘London England’ was dropped. The badge continued after Falcons takeover early 1987 and I believe survived until sometime mid 1988.
