I'm preparing the gas tank from my 1972 GT750J for repainting. (It's badly sunbleached). Does anyone know how to get the tank badges off?

You have to get something like a paint scraper behind them, there is a clip near each end that has to be pried out. Once you get them off you will see the "nuts" that latch them into the holes. You will probably bent the emblems a bit but there are not difficult to straighten. Just be careful and take your time.

Thanks for the advice. The badges came off exactly as promised. I carefully slipped a thin paint scraper behind the tank badges and slipped it against first the front and then the rear pin. Once up against the pin I carefully twisted the scraper so as to lever up as close to the pin as possible. First one end of the badge and then the other. I managed to not bend the badge or the pins. Here's some photos in case someone else encounters this task.
