    Congratulations, Gary. Minor additions:

    The primavera-font seems to be a stretched Clarendon Exra Bold Wide. Don't know if the Vespaclub Rome has the authorization to do so.

    The font for GREAT BRITAIN seems to be Eurostile #2 Extended.

    I'm not sure about the Lambrettista, but have no better suggestion.

    Hi Schwalben, thanks for taking the time to reply. You are right, looking at it the Primavera it does seem like a stretched version of the clarendon.
    The Vespa and the Lambrettista are just what I needed. Both needed to be messed with for what I wanted. (Had to edit them in outline mode in Illustrator to move the joins).
    The Lambrettista and the Vespa are very like the Ferrorosso in the way that they are joined (A bit like Brush script aswell).
    Until the next time!
    Kind Regards

    I looked at this Lambrettista and considered it no match. Apart from the serifs, look at the a (for example). But if softlat is happy with it ... fine.

    And, softlad, welcome aboard. And thanks for letting us know you found what you needed.
