Tank Badges

Anybody have a decent set of Vulcan tank badges they would like to part with? I know I can buy a set for $40-45 new, but I am trying to do this on the cheap. Ebay seems to only have the "Classic" or the "Eighty-Eight" badges and I don't want to buy a tank just for the badge.

You are unique. Just like everybody else.

I'm with you, I've been waiting for badges for a long time, I think I've settled with classic or 88 or none at all ... I'm not hi-jacking your thread but I'll second it, if there are any out there to be had I'll take my place in line after this guy asking for a set of badges, thanks.

I've been looking for a set with the same results, lots of classics out there, I want a pair but not for the tank, I'd like to customize the ears by removing the black inserts and putting a chrome plate in its place with badges mounted to it! I would rather have the flaming vn750.com logo and am still working on a way to make those in steel to match my grill cover. thought about making a wooden mold and possibly pouring lead into it as its easy to work with and seeing what happens but that will take some serious carving, might be a winter project!

Here is another option. They are about 7 inches by 1 each by 1/4inch raised lettering . They are for the front fender side decals on bigger bikes. I heated them repeatedly and pressed them to the side of my tank while they cooled, using oven mittens of course, until they were molded to the contour of the tank.

My filter cover had been damage by a teenager with a handycap and I was looking at getting another cover. My brother had the Ford Cobra emblems, he held one up to the bike and it covered the cracked fins. I cut them out to let the Cobra sit down in to them. Had a lot of fun with other bikers asking about them and I tell them that is a special addition of the 750, that it's actually 1 of 150 of these bikes made with a 1200 in a 750 skin, that it was the Cobra edition. They get all big eyed there for a minute. One guy last Sunday went and got 6 other people to come and look at it while I was in a store. Sometimes it's just so easy.......

You guys have pics of what you're looking for? I may be going without in the near future once i get closer to painting mine. It'll be a while but once I start, i can get mine out there for you all. Still up in the air on that but just in case.
