Bullock logos/decals

Postby Roinik » Sat Mar 02, 2013 12:11 pm

I've just purchased the boss a "new" late model Bullock ladies bike that does require a bit of a make over. I'm planning on taking the old girl back to the original colour scheme and highlights. The only bits I see that are of poor definition are:
* The stencilled Bullock Cycle Works decal on the seat tube. This has what appears to be the head of a bullock as the crown.
* The brazed on plaque on the head tube.

Does anyone know where I might be able to get a photo/design/decal of the seat tube marking or a plaque/pattern (even if it is a soap cast of the plaque) of the head tube plaque?

That's it. Still working on loading the photos.

Any chance I might get some detail photos so that I can get something drawn up/made as a replacement. I'll supply you with a copy of what I get made if you like.

I have been away for a few weeks and only just back home.
the Bullock I have has the metal head badge

and Mario has an excellent version on his site

I have uploaded some images of a Bullock headtube decal which looks the same as the seat tube version Mario posted earlier.
The folder is here.
They might be of help to you

Thanks Philip,

I last met Mario when he was scoping out a Bullock owned by Simon down the road. I believe it was circa a 1910-20's track bike. I've got onto a couple of spray painters and signwriters able to recreate the pinstriping etc. The stencilled logo will be a challenge, but I accept that challenge. Unfortunately the paint is too far gone to resurrect and a full resto is required. It appears that it was a metallic silver with a maroon or deep red painted over the upper parts of the bike and guards. I'll clean it up a bit when I return from holidays and post some photos.
