Yes it does have the badges. Its actually 3 colors with some beautiful pin striping added. I'm almost done being anal with the details now. Down to the rear wheel removal to polish the rim on my lathe face plate. Then clear coat. I'll post final pictures with the good camera once I finish. Plus I have some more chrome coming for her.
PS the old 1856 German bass I'm restoring could get us 3 new Wings but I love old stuff especially when it looks show room new and it's the very one I've always wanted. Glad the Reflex needed radiator fluid so I spotted this gem.

Not to change the topic but some old musical instruments can be worth big bucks to collectors. I had read an article about a gentleman who purchased a very old ornate banjo for $50.00 at a garage sale and in its present condition was worth 10 grand. I never find anything good at garage sales.

Very true. I found a 1920's Martin Ukulele in the trash that I sold for 17 grand in the 1980's.

Nice bike and speaking of musical instruments...I was strapped for money several years ago and so I decided to get rid of my Accordion that I had since I was a kid. I tried to sell it...no luck. I tried to pawn it...no luck. Everybody told me that nobody wants an Accordion. Everybody is trying to get rid of the things but nobody wants one. I decided that I would try to get my insurance to help me out. So, I went downtown, put the accordion in the back seat and left the windows down. Figured if it was stolen, I could get some money from the insurance company. I went to a movie and when I came out, lo and behold, there in the back seat was my accordion and 2 more just like it......:eek::D

That must be how it works some places here in Whatcom county.
You go by a place and there is now a wrecked or junk car/pick up in the front yard., Go by again in a week and there is 3 or 4 more.:confused::confused:
