    US company no? ....so not entirely surprising. What's expensive? It's a premium brand, so parts will cost

    But you could contact their U.K. Operation and ask if they sell
    https://litespeed.com/pages/united-kingdom
    An article about their UK distributor (but a bit old now), in the list above

    Quick update, Litespeed dealers UK, waste of time spent hours on the phone and sent of lots of emails to no avail, so its Ebay for me until one that i want turns up but the good news until then i just put an old Orbea badge on and know its the wrong badge but cost was zero and think it looks great? (sorry for poor picture)

    Indeed...you put an Orbea headbadge on a Ti bike...at least you could have got one from a manufacturer of Ti bikes if you're gonna fake it!

    Did you seriously spend hours on the phone and send lots of emails since yesterday (you can't expect an instant reply)?

    Yes lots of Emails and phone calls, but the good news is found a place ie- https://www.headbadges.com/store/p88/Litespeed_Headbadge.html and will order a sterling sliver badge, bit more expensive and more than i wanted to pay but as you said It's a premium brand and unlike James bond the rest of us only live once and yes i know i may pay import duty but way i look at it is if i want it and can afford it then i will buy it.

    Tbh i am surprised a bit that theres not a market for copies perhaps made cheap and sold on for a few £s, know theres a few types of Litespeed badge as they have changed over the years and some (like my one was) just a PVC vinyl, any way happy cycling.

    hang on a minute, what your ordering IS a copy and NOT a premium brand product

    Yes and maybe its a copy but made to a higher standard than an original so a premium replacement or upgrade?

    Have you not just tried Litespeed directly? Very helpful guys and gals over there. And don't waste your time with copies.
