I am the maker of the badges being posted on here....so I would like to offer some insight into the attachment here for everyone. I made a Celtic badge for my own titanium bike and was able to drill the head tube and tap the threads in by hand. I have very small stainless steel screws that I provide with all the badges I make. I can even provide the proper drill bit and taps if necessary.Drevil said:I spoke with the maker of my (ti) frame and the maker of those badges, and they both said that it would be no big deal to drill and tap the holes necessary for attachment. I don't know the results when doing it with a thinner guage metal such as steel, but I don't think it'll be a problem. However, you should probably ask the manufacturer directly.
hey- Jen Green here...have you got a photo of the badge mounted on your bike? I'd love to see it!32x18 said:jen made me a killer head badge for my ti frame. i found that i was unable to locate a #1 tap and drill bit (should have contacted jen). i ended up enlarging the holes and using a #3 tap and bit and had no problems. just remember to oil (lightweight oil) the tap and go very slowly if tap ti as the smaller taps will easily break if you force the issue. I got #3 ss button head screws from a local computer manufacturer but you can also find them in trophy/award shops.
I get my head badges done in cast pewter. You can see pics of them in the gallery http://www.thylacinecycles.com/galleryRevolution Cycle Jewelry said:hey- Jen Green here...have you got a photo of the badge mounted on your bike? I'd love to see it!
