    Default Los Vesparados MC Colors.

    So my buddy Mark is moving to SoCal and he's driving cross country, he's in Santa Fe NM now, and will be here by Sunday.

    He's bought a New 2022 Vespa GTV 300 HPE Sei Giorni and it's being delivered next week.




    So with Renee's new 300HPE and My red 300GTS

    I thought it would be fun to make leather vests with a made up club "Los Vesparados" So I just ordered 3 sets of patches like this

    With this text

    I'm thinking of a flaming V or a V with wings in the center of this

    A Red and White "California" bottom rocker is a statement, and those that have one are really funny about anyone else wearing that patch

    Just sayin'...

    You could start a Southern California chapter of the Solders of Destiny SC.

    Watch their movie, Slow Ride Home. They ride their scooters from Florida to Seattle.

    Yea I was reading about the whole cut / patches MC and 1% culture. I have a best friend that is a member of the Inland Empire Gentlemen MC I'll run I run it by him.

    Turns out it might be a fun idea that may not end up being as funny to those MC that take this stuff serious.

    Wearing a patch means you gotta back it up. You could become the founding charter - Doggy Style SC. Orange County CA

    Did you mention you were going to use a three piece patch w/rockers, some sort of wing thing for the center patch and "red and white" colors ?

    I'm just suggesting you go avoid a confrontation that a Bronx attitude and #2 pencil won't help

    I have colors and patches from a gang, i was going to give them away and asked peeps i know, however folks got real mad about it asking me where i got it from.

    Seems they are like a holy grail to some..
    I did not want it because of the swat sticker nazi patch..

    I have ridden MCs for years, i could care less but be careful. This is no joke to biker gang folks.

    Considering all the carp going on in the world, it's funny/pathetic that you have to even consider something like this to be potentially offensive.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    I like it. A fun idea. If I had a Vespa I would like to join the club and sport a bottom rocker of OHIO.

    I think you giving those colors away is a good idea. Post to Craig's List. Good luck.

    So do a different color scheme and use the name of the town rather than the state? Still a problem? Then just forget using a bottom rocker on the vest. Still a problem? Sheesh....

    The Sandusky, Ohio chapter of the Outlaw MC is only 16 miles away. Believe me... I would not want to piss off those guys.

    I was thinking

    - "Vespa" is Italian for wasp (hornet, really), so work a wasp/hornet into the design (and name? Hornets are vespa spp. and "hornet" specifically is "calabrone" in Italian.)



    - JCSOH and crew like Silverado Canyon as a ride, and the Silverado Cafe as their breakfast destination of choice, so something like the "Silverado Breakfast Bandits S.C." as the name. Maybe "Silverado Calabrones S.C."

    - An Italian Air Force roundel as the ground.

    Regular:



    Low-viz:

    The IAFF went with "group" instead of "club" seems to have mollified the 1%er types.
