I saw that quite a while back, some users on stellaspeed (I believe) had a Stella badge made to look like the 80's era Vespa badge. That seemed to be a limited run and I haven't found any.

I've contacted a car emblem maker who can make them. Would anyone be interested in 1 (or 3) if these get made? Obviously the costs decrease a bit based on volume, as the setup costs can be spread out.

It would look something like this:

There was a similar thread on this 6 years ago:

That's fun! Would these be injection molded, or 3d printed? Chromed, or painted?

These are not injection molded in such a small quantity. The company doesnt say exactly what the process is, but maybe 3D. Here is info on it as well as a gallery:

https://emblemart.com/newsite/chrome-emblems/

I have a quote for two sizes and they have artwork for the badge (see below). Size could be:

6" x 1.4"
or
4" x .94"

The cost for a small run of 15-20 would be around $20-25 per badge. I havent jumped in because I dont know if thats too high.

Thoughts? Thanks!
Michael

I would still buy three at $25 each.

I'm not sure what the best size is. My Stella's in the shop at the moment, but I'll take a ruler to it as soon as I can.

According to this site, this style of Vespa legshield badge is 120mm x 18mm, or 4.72" x 0.71", which suggests that the smaller size is probably better, at least for the legshield. I don't know whether the same size or a different size would look best on the cowls.

Thank you for managing all this, scooterdork!

I thought the smaller would be best for the leg shield as well, based on measuring mine. Cowls could be larger I suppose, but that would muck with cost.

Thanks!
