Triumph Tank Logo

I have to replace the Triumph tank badge. Anyone have any experience removing the old one?

I took a heat gun to them for about a minute or so. That softened the adhesive enough to easily pull off.

I used my wife's hairdryer and a plastic paint scraper. It took a little over 2 mins per side. Took longer to get up the nerve to do it. I fitted Speedmaster badges to my Thunderbird.

Thanks guys. I used a 3 step process. Soaked with Goo Gone which penetrated some but not a lot. Used a hair dryer then cut through with a thin piece of braided nylon string using a sawing motion. Worked like a charm.

I like those Speedmaster badges!!
