Actually, that is not true. Pay Pal has buyer and seller protection so you are covered. You just have to follow their protocol if there is a problem and they will take care of it.

I always check to see that the buyer is verified and that it is OK to ship. And I usually withdraw the funds before shipping if it's something higher dollar, just in case.

You must also use a traceable mode of shipment (UPS, FedEx, or USPS Priority) and save the tracking number. Sorry about listing the incorrect info.

Patch ideas so far...

...and...

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

Based on the suggestions and images given. I changed a bit of them (took off Modern Vespa from the one and made brighter colors and added TAG! to the other), but I'm no professional artist and have only very rudimentary editing tools here.

Anyone else? Anyone like either of these or have a modification to them?

This what I was thinking...
Kind of liked the original idea so this was my idea of that - created by the awesome Rex.

Had some quotes from a few patch places. If I can figure out how to put it here, I'll do it tomorrow. One company did a really good job on it.

Thanks Steve. Thought the Mod flair would make it more universal and still have that scooter flair that people wouldn't mind wearing.

I like it except for maybe a different font (maybe all caps, depending on the font?)...

font
I think the idea of a simple font was so that people could read it easier from afar when they're trying to read the patch. I was thinking of a capitol T like how it reads at the top our forum. Its a similar font. I could ask for another revision to see what it would look like all caps.

I may be the only one left on the planet, but I use an actual camera and my phone doesn't even have a camera in it (much less my having an IPhone...).

Everyone's missing the obvious one...

You can get the patch made with a hole punched in it, and tie your own thread through.

Lets see how other people feel.......?

I liked it too. Was quite surprised when I gave them my original and asked for these revisions. Wasn't expecting it to come out like this! 8)

Just can't wait to sport one of these on my vest as I tag Sacramento!

New to the forum, but I felt inspired to start this today. Hopefully some of you like it. I'll continue working on it a bit tomorrow, just wanted to get the basic shape and idea down today. I need to figure out what typeface to use and what type of background to place behind the scoot.

Also, I think we're not supposed to put "Modern Vespa" on it without permission... w/o that it would be more generic and thus more saleable to other sites where tag is played. But then that would render the year moot. Hmmm... what to do???

If anyone is willing to get these made, let me know so I can get you the file.

I would just like a patch or a decal in return.
