Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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

Have a local metal shop fab one with his name and use double sided tape?

These guys custom make metal head badges for fairly cheap.

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.

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.
