Rear frame badge

Post  Snails on Sat Feb 15, 2014 7:21 am

Anyone had any success fitting one of the remade rear innocenti badges? Mine, when fitted, rocks from side to side causing the push on fasteners to loosen. My thought is to try and bend the badge after applying some heat (hot water first and oven second) so that it's a better fit. Not that hopeful that this won't end up with a broken or melted badge si thought would see if anyone has fixed this issue before?

Ed, if it's just rocking on the centre ridge I'd get some clear silicone in there and stick it on, other than that I'd take a new sharp Stanley knife blade and just pare a little of the badge away at a time to get a close fit to the frame, making the notch for the ridge a little bigger.

I bought a Casa one from Armando's, it came with two hole plugs, very good quality and very good fit. Not sure if you get the plugs with the badge or not but it's worth a look to see if you can get them.

Thanks Adam I think mine is Casa also, not sure anyone else would make them. Came without plugs though. Interesting that yours fitted better so maybe someone else does make them unless there is some variance in ridge sizes between different Lui's

I don't think there will be a difference between lui and vega rear frame badge, I think the difference will be from the badge's.
I have used a cassa one and its fitted fine,it was a tight fit into the plastic plugs.
mine did not come with the plastic plugs, but I already had some.
