A guy I met in a cycle charities workshop was asking for advice as how to attach a coca cola bottle opener of the type usual attached to a pub bar the staff use to open britvic bottles etc to his head tube.

Cool idea, we decided superglue was the answer, looked good and practical too 8)

Bought two of these a couple of years ago with the idea of sticking one on my car, but ended up putting them in drawer and forgetting i had them.
They're made of aircraft quality aluminium and bendy enough so will easily fit around a headset. Really nice quality feel to them.
I guess you've got to like transformers though :) ..but I like em, a nice and simple retro design that would suit a fitting build.

bought them here btw plus he has other cool/related emblems>

[quote]When I was but a nipper, we had hours of fun putting crisp packets under the grill and watching them shrink to badge sized peices of plastic, miniture packets of crisps if you will- with some practice you could have a great salt and shake headbadge.[quote]
