    Headbadge. Remove and Replace. Anyone know?

    I want to rehab the front triangle with new powder. Is there a proper way to remove and replace the headbadge? I know I can order a new badge but I'd rather save my perfect one.

    That's all going to depend on what you have, some are decals, some are glued on dimensional and some are screwed on.

    This seems to be riveted on. I dont want to pull the fork to look inside the head tube to see whats going on since the bike is perfect and silent.

    Correct, it's riveted, you have to carefully drill out the rivet and you should be able to take the headbadge off.

    The fork will need to be pulled to powder coat the frame.

    I know that lol. I didnt want to pull the fork to examine the inside of the rivets. This would be done after the riding/racing season.

    Just saw this is in the Ventana forum, I was wondering why you hadn't mentioned what kind of bike it was.

    When I had my Ciclon, I had a custom head badge installed. The original head badge was left intact after the rivets were carefully removed. The rivets are unusable afterward, but it shouldn't be an issue to do that and maintain the head badge.

    Just an FYI, I believe Ventana offers a frame refurbishing service. If you're interested in bring it back to like-new, I'd call Teresa or Sherwood.

    Let them do the work. Less chance of someone goofing something up.

    I contacted Ventana via thier website. Specifically from the refurbishing page. That was five weeks ago without a response. In the end I buffed out the frame and had some die cut stickers made up. Amazingly, after seven seasons, the quad bearings had no pitting or grittiness so I cleaned them out and repacked them. Living in the desert has its advantages.

    Are they still around? They don't update that website at all and have minimal social media traffic.

    Yes, they are still around and doing very well. True, website has not been updated in a LONG time but are still pumping out fantastic bikes.

    Shoot them a call (they will answer or call you back) or email Teresa direct [email protected]

    That is odd, I will let them know that the website didn't get the message thru. That is definitely not like the V-crew to not respond.

    I know better and should've called. When I ordered the front triangle, with custom angles and options, and custom paint, I had a package waiting for me three weeks later and that was over the Christmas holiday. I've been super busy lately though.
