Anyone got a rh one they'd like to sell?

Spilt petrol over my tank a week ago - seems it destroyed the adhesive on the blue peter-esque double sided tape that holds the tank badges on. The right one disappeared somewhere on the eastbound A27 between Lancing and Holingbury. On finding the vacant recess, I checked the left one and it just dropped into my hand so could've been worse.

New ones are still out there, just, but cost anything from £55 to £90! Not seen any used ones.

Just waiting for some helpful member to say he's found an old on on the side of the A27 and is prepared to sell it to you. Wink

When I bought my Centauro in 2013 I loaded it onto my trailer and drove 200 miles home with it.

When I was unloading it I saw that BOTH tank badges had dropped off and a bit or research showed that this is a common problem with the adhesive failing.

Like the OP I winced at the cost of new and decided that I was not prepared to pay it.

Instead I opted for these Bellagio badges from ( I think ) Gutsibits for about £14 the pair.

They are slightly smaller than the originals but by carefully positioning them I was very happy with the end result. They were available in Red or Black and I went for the Black which turned out to be a good choice.

Sorted:
 
 
'Domed' resin stickers, would you believe. No longer fearful of the originals dropping off, or being poached by belt buckle hunters. Got these made up by Colin (aka Stinkus-Maximus) at Neo Graphix, on eBay.
£9 for the pair, sole surviving original now in a safety deposit box LOL
