As promised this morning, we are making available to everyone a Modern Vespa Ten Year Anniversary Patch. We're throwing in a Modern Vespa logo sticker as well (the same logo you see at the top of the page).

This patch was designed by our very own Ironfoot, and as usual he has done an outstanding job. I only wish that embroidery had more resolution so that you could see more of the detail in his design.

Pricing is $10 per patch, shipping included, PayPal only. See the MV Merchandise page for more information.

One important note: for the time being (i.e. the next couple of weeks) this is the only merchandise we're going to be selling. Yes, a bunch of you would probably take the opportunity to buy something from our back stock of merchandise, and yes, that would be great. We are restricting the merchandise sales in order to protect our delicate sanity during this big patch push. The older merchandise will return in November.

Hey that looks great!

This is the first time I've seen this artwork embroidered as a patch, and looking at the picture up there, I think the reproduction stands up very well indeed. All good here. Looking forward to getting my hands on one.

It's been a pleasure to be involved with this and other MV projects over the years.

Sad that you only accept Paypal. They are crooks. I closed my Paypal account and will never use them again. Please consider Google Wallet, or Skrill, or other alternatives to Paypal.

You do not need to have a PayPal account to use your CC to order the patch.

On the reverse of most patches there is hot glue. Its purpose is to seal the embroidery not to serve as a way to iron the patch on.

The best way to apply a patch is to sew it on.

I posted a howto on my blog:

None of the MV patches so far have been iron on. Jess or one of the mods could chime in. I've been wrong before.

I was talking generally as opposed to MV patches.
The right pocket patch (Eastern) is iron on and the left pocket patch (GTSOC) is sew on.

Just completed purchase 10 year patch. After 9.5 years of great viewing and some posts to help others and myself better understand our scoots. My other patch is the limited edition vespa Italian patch. I most enjoy my two scoots, BV 300 and BV 350.

I'm in! Just ordered mine. And I don't even have a jacket to sew it on. But I just can't resist these type of things, and it looks very nice! It will probably languish in my desk drawer for 10 years, but I don't care, I had to have it!
