hi the Raleigh badge is on the head stock and appears to be glued on as there are no raised rivets as I have seen before.

I just removed a Raleigh badge, I used a flat ended punch to remove the rivet ends from inside the head tube and a heat gun to free it off. Not sure if it was glued on or not but it will have to be glued back on.

Just seen your last post, so use a Heat Gun!

It's probably stuck on with double sided tape...

Fishing line, (the strong variety) is the best bet, you'll probably need a 'friend' to help!

Can we see some pics of the Corsa?
