Evil or Very Mad

It seems somebody with nothing better to do ripped off the Silverwing lettering from the sides of my Swing. Anybody know where I can get replacements?

bikebandit.com has a schematic drawing with all the parts. You may check there to see their pricing and compare vs a dealer... billc.

Tom,
I can only suggest getting replacement lettering from a Honda dealer. You may want to have a look at http://www.servicehonda.com/hard%20parts/street/fsc600%20%2702-%2704/2002-2004%20fsc600%20silverwing.pdf
page 131 shows the lettering, part number 83502-MCT-690.
That way you would have the same style lettering both sides.
David Silver spares here in the UK are listing them at about $60 each side.

The Silverwing letters do not look to be an order-able item. You would have to replace the panel or replace with alternative lettering (which may be cheaper).

Try this link:

http://www.servicehondapsn.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=2519999&category=Scooters&make=Honda&year=2009&fveh=132253

I've ordered them before and received them, so I have to say they are an order-able item.

This is hondafont. Seeing that both are missing then chrome vinyl would probably work. Could even do '600' as well.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the fast replies very much! Looks like Dale found the best price by far. Still gonna cost me something like $62.00 plus shipping to replace the lettering. A high price to satisfy somebody's idea of entertainment.

Hi, Bill! I'm doing better. Still a long ways to go but at least the constant weakness and dizziness is gone. I have about two or three months left in the Army before I retire and move to Albuquerque.

This could be an opportunity to get creative. My Pacific Coast was labeled as an "Acura 0.8PC", with logos. Cost me about $20 and got a lot of questions from bystanders. (Of course the Body by Tupperware stickers helped.) There are several people out there, right now, who believe that Acura (in collaboration with Tupperware) put out a limited edition motorcycle.
