Got tired of trying to find a lighted dealer sign and had a business make one for me. Hopefully it will arrive this week. It appears they have turned around and begun to sell them on eBay. They offered me black or white background and it looks like they'll do either background for eBay buyers too.

Sign arrived. Unfortunately it is not nice. What really sucks is they put their business name on the front of the sign, although the graphic proof I signed off on didn't include putting their business name on the face of the sign.

That's a shame...is it just the logo that's upsetting or all round "lack of quality"..?....Poor spelling throughout the advert leads me to think its made in China but is disguised as being made in USA???

Seller agreed to take it back and refund my money or send back one without their logo on the front. Plugged it in and checked out the quality before repackaging it. Mehhhh..... Colors aren't deep enough, so the logo is washed out when lit. The application of the graphic to the lens is wavy and the lens itself is crudely cut. Going to take the refund.

I've got a local sign shop that will make a 2x3 lense for $100. Got to find a light box to use or make one. I've done both, I'll post back to this thread once I've got something done.

Finally got this done. Bought a 2x3 sign frame off Ebay and got the lens produced. Hung among the others.

That looks tidy enough and "aged"......to look original

Whats the Red Duc far left in the corner? All other bikes nicely identified due to reg plates.....Looks like a superlight but has different rear seat unit on it? Similar to the one I fitted on my 900ss...narrow rear light unit with seat unit tapered up to suit......

Lighting signs with fluorescent bulbs always makes them look aged.
