Icon Regulator Aircooled Vest - Cruiser Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore

With all the talk about patches and t-shirts and ordering a few. I was thinking it would be nice to have something to put them on. So while looking through one website I came across the vest pictured in the above link. Its an Icon regulator vest. Has a patch on the back that read Superior Horsepower with an engine and skull in the middle.

I though it would be neet to have it say Superior Engineering with the 1300 motor, skull, and say Honda on the crank cover instead of Icon. Yes a patch that size will cost, but love the idea.

I cant draw so anyone want to take on the challenge.

It would be interesting to see you wear that as you strolled thru the Harley Dealership.

That's a nice vest idea. The vest is on e-bay with a starting bid of $ 100.00 for l-xl. Others carry it for $280.00. As luck would have it... I'm prob a xxxl for this leather. See if shorty Steve can mock it up.

No I didn’t see that. I figured it was coming though. Their store is almost empty and the sales staff says everything is fine and that another dealer in town is spreading stories about them. Not sure who that is. I was told by somebody that they had actually filed bankruptcy.

NMUCat, I didn't have much time to get this done as I have to get ready for a big meeting. I hope this gives you a good idea of what it would look like.

NMUCat, anyone that wants a quote for that patch will need to send in a picture of JUST the patch and tell them that it is 11 x 10. I can supply the pic for anyone that wants it. I can shoot it to my patch guy and get a quote.

zitrosfury, I can change ANYTHING on any of my designs. I drew it up without the exhaust ports but the ICON vest had ports so I put them on.
Not real fond of them myself.

Ya I can't bring myself to spend that much on a jacket, let alone s vest. I got a ma/pa leather shop near buy, I'm gonna check them out tomorrow. I got a pair of buffalo chaps for $50.

SS, thanks again for quick responses. Little tweaks, remove exhaust ports and extra pieces on the right of the engine. Can your guy do the top and bottom rockers as well?

NMUCat, My guy can do anything I can draw up.:rolleyes:
The question is, can you afford it?
Patches are valued by the stich and the cut.To do something this big and an edge-cut will not come cheap
Doing it right is not going to be cheap, doing it cheap is not going to be right.

Here are you tweaks.


Fling B, we have the "HONDA" in the cover for 2 reasons. 1. The bike does. 2. The huge gapping "F" in the skull says Fury.

As the patch stands now it is 11 1/4 x 10 inches with about 96% stitch coverage. Let me warn you guys, this is NOT going to be a $6 patch.
Manufactures charge by the stitch and the number of colors.

With the words in rockers we can change the wording without doing different patches, that will help keep the cost down some.

I have sent the pic out to my patch guy for a quote but with the cost I don't think this will be a big seller, limited runs mean a higher price.

I have bought patches this size for about $30 to $40. Not sure what the price will be for a custom one.

But if this helps, you will pay about $9.95 for something like the ECFR patch and we got it delivered for $6.50. We will see what my guy says, it don't cost nothing for the quote.
