I am curious to know if this is a custom head badge or if it is a stock emblem. searched the images on head badge sites but no luck. I even uploaded image to search by image engines and no correct results. so wondering if someone knows this emblem decal.
It's Rapid, I seem to recall, but I don't know if it's the supermarket brand of that name.
The blurry pic shows 'RA' as the first two letters, but both Raleigh in UK and Raleigh USA have consistently used the same tall heron logo as the head badge on their products.
The model name of this bike as given on the frame would help pin the company name down.
