OK, I know this is a really really long shot, but the little WW2 Enfield project that I have has a space
on the rear mudguard for what I think would have been a Dealer badge.

And that badge would have been Marble Arch Motor Supplies in London, I suspect - given that they
advertised they supplied ex-WD Royal Enfields in all new maroon paint - even the advert is printed in maroon !
They advertised, extensively, for many a year in the blue un and the green un.

Anyone seen such a badge ??
Anyone got such a badge.
I can find little badges on fleabay, but they clip onto your collar...

Badge looks to have been long gone by the time I got it ...
Its just possible it was some sort of military badge though, perhaps a REME workshop badge ??

I think I'm seeking something along the lines of

Or just do a bit of brass sheet with this design, onto a 2" space ....

A metal tag of aluminum, brass, copper, even stainless steel can be etched. There are a lot of online tutorials "how-tos" on etching. You can get quite a lot of detail, enough to match the black and white logo or a drawing like the lapel pin.
Another option is similar to a project I'm working on; solder or epoxy the lapel pin onto the center of the metal plate. Drill a hole in the plate and solder or epoxy the pin over the hole. Countersink the hole slightly from behind to help it hold better.

What happened to the guy that sold dealer decals?

I wondered about that decal guy.
Although I previously looked into that, and there was nothing available then.

Thanks.
I had thought about just impressing the design into some brass or copper sheet.
Did that as a project at school, and that dragon is still lurking someplace.
Fiddly little design for this badge size, might give it a try though.

Interesting idea about the collar badge - might come to that even.

The decal guy tried to dump them on EBAY some months ago.

I think he went out of business, is my guess.

They still seem to be about, albeit ~10,000 of them are Dunstall variants ?

Maybe I should just select one I like ....

As long as you've got an AA key, (3rd photo) why not an AA badge?

Haven't followed this thread but I notice the AA badge is for a car, I do have a AA motorcycle badge out in my garage somewhere. It has two bolt holes in the bottom of the chrome part. Cheers

Regarding AA badge, I'll start a new thread to avoid clogging up this one. See post "Vintage AA Badges"
