'Removing a Head Badge'

 

 

 

To remove a Head (Heron) badge from the head tube of the frame, I have found the following procedure to work the best. It helps to preserve the head badge for refitting after the frame has been repainted. 

All that is required to refit the badge is 3 new head badge rivets. 

 

 

To remove the top rivet slide a sharp blade from a Stanley knife or similar under the badge, when it comes into contact with the rivet tap the blade gently with a hammer, 

this will cut the soft rivet in half releasing the badge from the frame. 

The side rivets are sliced in the same way, see the pictures below.

Once all three rivets have been sliced, the badge will drop off the frame.

The remainder of the rivet can then be tapped out of the frame 

and badge using a small pin punch or nail.

 

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE SHARP EDGE OF THE BLADE DURING THIS OPERATION AS PER THE PICTURE BELOW.

We also recommend the use of safety glasses.

 

 

Slicing the top rivet

 

 

 

Slicing the Left hand side rivet, the Right hand rivet is a reversal of this procedure.

 

 

There we are! Another job made simple :)

 

And there you have it! 

Any comments greatly received.
