You can pry them off with a screw driver, etc.  I got out the model
airplane paint brushes, black and white model paint and painted
mine.

On the 1972 CB 750 model as mine is, the emblems are held on by pins
from behind the emblems with small clips on the pins. To remove these
I use a flat putty knife to pop off the emblems. Be carefull not to
damage the Honda emblems because they are not replaceable any more. I
use paint striper on the emblems amd removed all the old paint and
then polished them to a nice chrome look, and I didn't want to fuss
over trying to repaint them every so often.

I need to refinish my gas tank and want to remove (and then replace) the die cast metal Honda emblems.  They are not held on with an adhesive and I can't find any Phillips head screws.  The tank does have a bracket of some sort which is visible as a pocket formed on the side of the tank when viewed from the inside through the gas cap opening.  There appear to be two points of mechanical attachment for each emblem, but I don't know how to get them off without causing damage.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
