I'd love a patch .... I missed out on the ones this site made up several years ago. I'd love to get them as well!

I'm working with the patch company to get them made and a final price so I can figure out unit cost and then shipping. Intend to use paypal or cash. I'll keep you posted.

Like the design of the patch.
One suggestion if I may?
If we loose the letter E after XS1100 then the patch can apply to other XS1100 models instead of just the XS1100E
What do other members think?

Sorry but you're missing the point of my suggestion.
The XS1100 was launched in 1978.
Wether we have a 1978 or 1981 model it's still a XS1100.
What I am suggesting is that a patch with XS1100 on it can cover all models from 79-81.
A patch with XS1100E may be interpreted by some as a patch for just that model.

IMO an anniversary should be designated from the "original" models' date of production.

Now as the '79 SF still shares the same-ish engine it is still the "first" Special model which will be 40 next year, all other Specials are not firsts and the same goes with the Standards.

Also the XJ 1100 Maxim is an original offered one year here in the States that you could celebrate its 40th in 2022.

Respectfully the XS 1100 5k7 Euro Sport and the Oceanic RH Sport are a first model offered across the pond in '81 as well as the Martini which is an "F" with a John Mockett designed fairing.

Sample

This is the sample. Not quite what I expected, but I'll give approval.

Can we not have it without the letter E after XS1100?

I agree. The E designates only the first year of production. Leaving the E off of the patch is appropriate.

The "E" is the first XS1100 created, IMHO that's the reason/meaning for the 40th anniversary, all other Standards aren't firsts.

Patch states Yamaha XS1100 40th anniversary. If the E is left off, more people would want the patch. If the E stays, and you don't own a 1978E, why would you be interested? I would not.
