I have to agree with Mark here.
I have used Christian's services in the past in reproducing decals for my Motomarina Sebring, Garelli Monza, and more recently, my Derbi Variant. Christian is in Moldova but I originally found him through Facebook on the MopedArmy ("unofficial") and Lovers of Puch Mopeds (or maybe it was the Tomos page...idk) group pages. It does take time for Christian to reproduce everything, and you have to put in effort to supply him with clear pictures / scans, measurements, etc., but the finished products are well worth the effort.
He has never asked me for a deposit up front, but as many of you have also said, that mistake was on him and he should do so going forward. As with all reproduction decals, you get what you pay for. I've always been more than satisfied with what I've received. The only issue is that it takes a while for things to get into the US because of customs and the distance these things have to travel, but it is what it is. I haven't found many people here in the States that put in as much effort as Christian does.
That being said, I don't know what is going on with the other thread he made about potentially being scammed or mislead by a customer, and if that customer is even one of us MopedArmy folks, but as many of you have correctly pointed out, it is a learning lesson for Christian.
The derbi decals he posted in this thread the other day are actually mine and are en route to me as I type this.
Long story short, if you need moped decals done, and have the patience to go through the entire process, Christian is a great resource for them. If you find someone local to do it for you, even better. But all-in-all, the dudes work is legit and that is all I care to comment on.
