    Question BMW roundel for rear fender?

    Where can I buy a BWM rondel for the rear fender that attaches by the 2 holes already on the fender? I've seen these on bikes, but can't seem to find them at a retailer.

    Point me in the right direction.

    Got the rondel at the dealer and Gorilla Glued a bolt to the back in the correct location to fit the hole in the fender. Been that way for 3 years.

    I Gorilla Glued a different emblem to my license plate 10 years ago and it was still very solidly attached when I removed it by sliding a thin scroll saw blade behind it when I needed to turn in that plate just last month. I recently Gorilla Glued that same emblem to the rear fender of my RT. My point being that from my experience the GG will certainly be sufficient and a rear bolt is not needed.

    I actually just got mine from Bob's. I learned the hard way that you need to get the logo plate and stick-on roundel separately. Colin was extremely helpful in getting me set up.

    Logo plate: http://store.bobsbmw.com/product/RearFenderLogoPlate

    Two choices for roundel. I got the 3D version: http://store.bobsbmw.com/product/bmw-emblem-3d---70mm

    Looks great on the bike.

    Maybe a little off topic, but...

    I inherited a roundel belt buckle from a friend's father. He seems to have glued the roundel onto an existing metal belt buckle. My guess is that the roundel came from a boneyard find and got repurposed in it's new home...
