    OK Ax, now you're just showing off :mrgreen: I'm guessing the Peerless on the right. The Rollfast pedal plates are awesome and the WF badges, put it over the top! Nice work friend...I'll pm you about my efforts..

    I nominate you for 'Bike Artist of the year' for these. A 'set' would make a beautiful display anywhere bike nutters congregate :D .

    I think he's getting better. :shock: That Johnson badge looks factory made. From now on, I will wonder if any "old badge" that I see is really old. :p Keep up the good work. Gary

    Haha I figured it was just a matter of time before somebody started doing these. They look really great! Word of warning to those who want to try it.....as an experienced metalsmith and intaglio printmaker, I STRONGLY recommend ferric chloride as an etching solution. Muriatic acid produces an insane amount of invisible fumes. I saw a hall of fame bladesmith accidentally drink a mouthful of Ferric chloride once, and he was fine. Well, he did say his fillings felt funny afterward. :lol:
