Well, I am the guy who makes Ducati belt buckles. And I have had three guys with new Scramblers get a pair of my buckles done up as badges for their Scramblers. Here's the link to my web page. Ducati Belt Buckles by Tom Rolland Pretty funny, three guys with Scramblers coming up with the same idea. One in Michigan and two in Australia, one in Sydney and the other in Brisbane. I got a picture from the guy in Sydney of them on the bike. I'll post that as well. Also today I just got an order for a pair of them for another one, but these will be solid Sterling Silver.

Hey Tom - that link doesn't work, but I'm into it. Can you post another photo? Also, have you worked with them to figure out how to mount them?

I'm mostly interested in 'reusable' logos, as the current ducati ones are just stuck on with double sided tape.

Hi Tom
Got my badges yesterday afternoon, spent the rest of the night refitting the ceramic coated exhaust I just got back at the same time.
Fitted your badges and I think they look great - double side tape as discussed.
here are some pics.

Very cool there Shane and thanks for the pictures of what they look like on your bike. Folks are wanting to know. I just got an order for a pair of them yesterday in solid Sterling Silver Pretty cool and I am guessing he has a black bike like yours too. And just so folks know. Each badge takes me about three hours to make, they are investment cast. Cost in gold brass is $40 each. Sterling is about $125 each, don't know on that for sure as I haven't had them cast in Silver since the price of Silver has gone down, might run a little more. Shane is in Brisbane Australia, and it cost me $14 US to mail them to him. Here in the US shipping is $5 for a pair of them.

And at this point I am out of rough castings. I will get a batch of castings back in about two weeks. I don't get a lot of orders for buckles these days and I didn't know I was going to be getting orders for them as badges for Scrambler owners. So far I have two sets in Oz and one in Michigan. I do have a couple of buckles in gold brass in case someone wants a buckle instead. Tom Rolland

Looks nice! How much to ceramic coat the exhaust?
