    Default RUNE. Font

    Does anyone know if the " Rune " on the side of the tank is a certain font?

    When I was making the luggage rack for my Rune, I searched for what seemed like years but was more like several days time looking for the exact Rune font but all I found was the font named 'Viking Normal'... This is a look at what the rack looks like... The name Rune is a copy of the Honda font and the Model name is the Viking Normal font.

    I gave up looking so the project could proceed... Good luck on your search...

    'Ra Rune'

    The “Rune” on the tank can be ordered from Honda

    I've taken Honda artwork of the logo and had the vinyl sign folks cut me new logo's for my 2 tanks last year. I bought the factory decals, but I didn't like the way they look with the backing sheet showing, the individual cut letters show much better. If you were hoping for letters other than RUNE, you'll need to find a graphic artist to make up the new letters you need based upon the 4 letters we have, it's do able, but it might cost you a bit. Maybe you know someone who is artistic that will work for a nice bottle of wine!!

    Hope that helps

    Now that you mentioned it Jack, I just remembered I have a friend with several businesses, one of which is a sign company. He specializes is custom cut vinyl signs, so I think I'll call him tomorrow for a quote on Rune signs of various sizes... Be back with info tomorrow evening...

    I was looking for a jpg. file with the image in it or the font. I want to incorporate it into a mud flap 3D printed in TPU ( like rubber). It would be embossed in the mud flap.

    I just spoke with my friend about the Rune font... He said he is not interested because of the legal issue...
    I told him of all the stuff on the CafePress website and he said he is still not interested... Sorry Folks...

    Default Rune Font on CD at back of Rune Book?

    I read on this thread where someone said that the font in question is on one of the CD's at the back of the Rune Book.
    I've looked here and could not find that post... and I looked 'throughout' the CD's and could not find any font there.
    Anyone here know who posted that info...???

    That is the font called 'Viking Normal' I referred to earlier and also the font I used on my luggage rack...

    Your mud flap looks great... are you making this to sell to your fellow Rune owners?

    I dont have the disk or book. The mud flap slides on over the inside lip on the bottom of the fender. I have not decide if it will say Valkyrie or Rune. I will probably print it out this weekend. It take 19 hour to print in a rubber compound.

    Thanks for the jpeg. I converted it to a file I can use in Fusion 360 and put it on the mud flap I'll see how it works.20191027_003635_1572161949404.jpg

    Default My prototype 3d printed TPU mudflap. Needs a little tweaking

    At least it will keep the rocks off the rad. I give up it keeps flipping my pic when I load it,

Nice work on yours! I figure one day when the front fender is off of mine I will remove the -RUNE- and send of to have chromed instead of polished up some as it is now.
    That looks pretty nice.
