Sorry if this is a repost.  I just spotted it.  No connection to seller, etc.

This is cool.  Currently sold out, but they'll make more with enough interest.

In a far corner of the historic Moto Guzzi factory outside courtyard at Mandello del Lario, just past the wind tunnel which is slowly rusting away, there is a battered door to a large workshop which is always locked. The old sign on the door with its rusty rivets, weathered surface and faded, peeling letters says 'Reparto Sperimentale', which means 'Experimental Department' in English. Who knows what might have been invented there over the years? The V8? The Le Mans 1? Who has worked in there - Carcano, Carlo Guzzi, Lino Tonti, Dr John Wittner, Bruno Scola?

We have reproduced that wonderful sign having seen it and desired it every time we've been to Mandello because we wanted one for our workshop door - and now you can too. We've kept the patina of the original sign faded by time and encapsulated it into hard-wearing vinyl and PVC. Click on the photos below for a better look. Perfect for your shed, garage, workshop, man cave, living room, toilet door, wherever...

Each sign is 42cm (16.5 inches) wide x 14.8cm (6 inches) high, and made of high-quality 5mm thick PVC board used for outdoor signage, and weighs 140 grams. The graphic is printed directly onto the board using a unique 7 colour UV curing printer and ink that is highly durable outside so you could nail it your garage door. Easy to mount and drill - that's for you to do, no mounting points supplied. This is a high quality repro sign, not some crap cardboard cheap copy
