It is the original badge, I have another here that is barely legible. This is a picture I snagged off the net. They made really beautiful bikes but this one had been broken bent and repainted several times by the time I found the frame. I just realized the build thread has a different title. I was calling this one Euro trash when it was on the hook because I actually found it when someone at a swap meet asked for help to look for an unusual cruiser. It was pretty trashed. The cantilever bars had been broken off and brazed back on really cockeyed and it put the whole frame out of kilter.
