    Non-Brand Headbadges? sticker back?

    o hey there

    so im refurbing a run down bike of a friends into a workable, ridable bike.
    anywho, its sort of my birthday present to him, so im adding a few little niceties here and there.

    just curious, does anyone know where i can find NON BRANDED HEADBADGES? preferably, with a simply super sticky sticker backing?

    ive tried searching ebay and google, havn't really found much. mostly just brand specific badges. and 1. i dont know the make of the frame and 2. my friend probably dosn't care about repping said makers if i did know.

    just his headtube looks barren. could use something shiny.
    ok thanks!

    happy Halloween! muwhahahaahahha

    Dont see them on the web site anymore but I scored a New Belgium Brewery headbadge at Tour De Fat a few years ago. It was awesome.

    That's a vinyl decal, not a head badge.

    True, but I am fond of it, and it does do the job of filling up the empty space.

    I'm just making the point that illd wasn't trying to start a "post a pic of what you stuck on your head tube" thread, but rather asking where to get a non brand-specific head badge.
