Trek Headbage?

Just about to finish my build on a 1991 Trek 750 - the ebay seller sent it to me without a headbage!!! I have been looking for a couple weeks without much luck. Does anyone have one they can sell or trade with me. Don't care if it's the right vvintage. Things like this really bug me!!!!!

I've seen them on ebay, used and for a good deal less than the
NOS one above.
now if you had been talking about the original one that screwed into the headtube,
those get pretty expensive.
keep watching ebay, and also see if Skip at Vintage Trek has any
resources for them.

When I had my Trek 710 repainted I could not track down the original headbadge. Mine was replaced with a "custom" version.

Add my name to the want list. Looking for the sticky-backed one for an '83.

Might as well pimp myself via eBay - just started getting rid of all my extra crap, and just happen to have a Trek badge from 1984 I think.
