Definitely upper case N.

Rivet counters even for a logo, why should I be surprised?  :-*

I prefer, and still do, something innovative and different, just like what the brand stood for when it was alive and kicking ass. But if this adjustment means we will in some small way resurrect the spirit of the club I'm all for it.

I hacked these comps out on my mobile version of photoshop so I will rework the lineart and font weight to work with the Cap N and fit the subhead to it.

Best part is the shirts can be made as one offs, so you can choose whichever badge you like in a multitude of shirt colors and sleeve lengths. I'm looking at sites tha will allow us to get them for cost and shipping direct from the storefront.

Stickers, patches and hats are a possibility as well, but shirts will go first.

I will prototype a few and update the group with actual photos of the shirts so you know what you are getting before you order.

Thanks for all the feedback,
Bob

Mine too, it's the lighting and the color correction that make it pop. The other badges will look better once I shoot them.
I'm partial to the "lower case" n version as it looks a bit ore modern. The capital N, to me, is too normal. YMMV.

 ::) fFS ............... lower case at front of uppercase sucks.

No argument there. The final design is with a cap N. Like this.

That t-shirt design looks great - I'll be up for one once they are ready.  Nice job!

Just being pedantic, and feel free to tell me to pull my head in as it's none of my business ...

It's a nice logo and looks cool, but if you're trying to replicate the Laverda logo font, then the C in NALOC is at odds. It's different from what I'd expect a C to look like in Laverda logo font. It has square corners whereas other curved letters in the Laverda logo don't have square corners. R and D for example. The G in Mirage also has rounded corners.
