     I wonder if anybody here is familiar with the seller or has actually seen them?

     At that price, if they were halfway decent quality, shipping one of each almost makes sense.

     Tks very much for posting

I contacted the seller," Ed lnu cubschicago35@gmail.com", he says he's now out of the Italian flag style but still has the other styles in stock, willing to ship to Canada for the same $4@.

Couple of red flags jump out for me, no pun intended, 3 different items, 1 immediately out of stock creating a sense of urgency,,, the margins on those flags at that price would be extremely tight, willing to ship to Canada for the same price, almost makes me think it's too good to be true, fwiw idk

I'd love to hear from somebody that may be familiar with the vendor and can verify it's not a scam before I send coin.

I bought one of the Italian Flag ones and Paypal has a box to check for insurance, which the seller pays. I paid $20 with shipping.

I texted the number, got immediate response.. Sent him $19 via venmo and he texted me a pic of the package with a USPS tracking number 10min later, said it shipped same day. We shall see. I got the Tricolore one as well, loos like several did, so not surprising those sold out first? 

I wanted the black one, but my wife said it had 'nazi vibes'???? And that if a delivery driver just caught a glimpse of it thru the garage window with the lights out they might think we are skinheads???    :thewife: :thewife: :thewife:

Which of course brought to mind the funniest Nazi sketch in history. "Are we the baddies??"

Sending seat covers via USPS to the states costs me 8.95.  The EXACT same package to Canada is just shy of 29 bucks and requires a customs deceleration page.

Link no longer comes up.  Would like to hear if the flags show up.

Oh yeah, I got mine yesterday. It's exactly as shown in the ad, actually the quality is a little better than expected. needs a spritz and a quick tumble in the dryer to get the creases out, I will try to remember a pic when I get it up

Greetings All!

I bought one of the tri-color flags from Ed and it is a great quality piece. He also has some Guzzi lighted signs.

I suggested he post here to offer his Guzzi items.

He ships quickly and sends shipping info to you.

So if he does post here and you want one of his products he is very legit.

Ride safe and often,

Jeff

Agree totally! And guzzi4me, I love the names you have given your bikes! Which Olivia is yours named for? My V7 III Special is "Sophia", Enfield Chrome 500 is "Guinevere" and the V Strom is "Rita" from the Netflix series........

Greetings 9fingers!

My wife helped me name my Guzzi's.

She said that at least my second love had 2 wheels and not two legs...hence "Mistress".

Giada was named after the Food Network host..

Olivia was named because of the oil threads here...always told my riding partners that i used
only olive oil in her because she is Italian.

Now...9fingers is rather interesting....stor y???

Ride safe and often,

Jeff

All good! My wife named the Strom for me. But I get a juvenile kick out of saying that I am "going to ride Rita furiously" for a few hours........my apologies to the ladies of the forum......Anyone who has seen "Rita" on Netflix knows that she loved to ...........ummm, had a very active libido........
LOL, 9fingers is due to the car accident I had in 76 when I was in college. I flipped my Honda Civic on an icy mountain road and my hand was pinned between the roof and the road and ground down my thumb as the car slid along......so 9 digits......but 9fingers sounds better. Ha Ha It makes working the clutch and holding on while trials riding somewhat "interesting". But I have many trophies so it has worked out fairly well.
