    double sided tape works.

    It's pretty common to get head badges cut by water jet -- that's going to run about $200 for 20 or so. Cast head tube badges cost about $500 for the first one. Alternately, you can get stainless shim stock and cut it yourself

    You can make a better looking one than those with a coping saw and some files.Those things look like they were cast in beach sand.You can attach it with rivets,small screws or clear silly putty(silicone).
