Super short rivets for head badges

Hi all,

I am assuming a few of you have re-attached headbadges in the past. I bought a hand riveter for just this task with my Raleigh Competition that I restored (which turned out pretty nice, if I can pat myself on the back) but I cannot find rivets short enough so that the rivets as installed do not interfere with the steerer tube from the fork.

Where have you sourced rivets that work for this? I really want to get the headbadge back on (I just think it looks better) so any help is appreciated. Thanks

Smiles and Happiness
