Maschek's Truing Stand

Ed Maschek sold me this "Schwinn" truing stand in 1990.  He was selling out his 50+ year old Schwinn parts dealership of tools, frames and spares.  I've seen pictures of a stand like this in old, factory photos of bicycle factories and shops . . . but, I still don't know the actual brand-name of the stand.  This is the first time I've trued a motorcycle wheel with it.  This 28" wheel was too tall for our original H-D stand.
Ed had about 100 of these brass head badges made up.  This one is NOS.  I have a few more, and you still see one every once in awhile on a rummage sale bicycle.  I've bought an entire bicycle just to get another head badge.  MASCHEK CYCLE
