I could be wrong, i don't believe you'll find any. I think military logos are considered property of the perspective government. I'm guessing you'll have to get the sticker/logo you want and put it on yourself...or manufacture it yourself. When i was in the service i recall that it is a legal issue. Gov will allow stickers and such to be made for each branch of the service. When it comes to putting logos on equipment manufactured and sold to the public, that's a different story. Of course, times change. I've been civilian for 20 years, things may be different now (though unlikely). Good luck.

Your best bet would be to find an engraving shop with a CNC engraver or check with trophy shop. I was an engraver at a military base for 10 years so I know it can be done.

Thanks....They do sell the stuff found some Army at JP but looking for some Air Force. Found some medallions that stick but I believe those will eventually fall of with weather and vibration.

As far as the engraving goes seems like talented people can do some nice things and maybe thats the way I'll have to go. My concern thought with that is once yo break the chrome finish is it going to start rusting? My guess is it would.

There were a few booths at the local bike show this weekend that had the different branches emblems that you could apply to your bike. Snyper's Eagle,Globe, and Anchor setup is nice. - Semper Fi!
