Hi
Can anyone tell me how AA/RAC badges were mounted on bikes in the old days?

Cheers

Hi Frank
As far as I can recall the badge came without any brackets just had two holes along the bottom edge for the owner/member to fasten it to whatever was handy.
Don't think I ever got mine on the bike (1961 ish) and it should be somewhere in the house
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

Motorbike ones were smaller than the car ones. Only ever seen them mounted on crash bars or screwed on th rear mudguard under the rear no.plate

Years ago, I worked for the RAC. Different fittings were available but the handlebar clamp was the most popular. One was also available to fit on the front forks. I regret that I have not seen any for many years now, so it's fleabay or fabricate your own.
Hope you have success.
Just found this on the net. This was the handlebar or badge bar mount- may give you an idea.
