My buddy Karl Edwards is a bike rider and collector extraordinaire. He and I met more than a decade ago when we bid on the same Raleigh International. He graciously let me win the auction because I told him the bike was the same model, year (1971) and color (champagne) of my very first 10-speed, the one that set me on the righteous path to a lifetime of cycling. Karl is also a very fine professional illustrator. Check out his website; you'll see what I mean. Sometimes his art projects intersect with his interest in classic and handbuilt bikes. For his latest project, he designed a new headbadge for Ahearne Cycles of Portland Oregon. The finished product is below.
