+1 to you for the oddballest question ever.

If you're looking to replicate the K75/K100 logo, I'd think your best bet would be to import the JPG into Photoshop and manipulate it as a raster image. The entire font set would be overkill since you're only dealing with 6 possible characters.

Since there's only 6 chars involved there's no guarantee it's based on any font at all -- could be just a graphical logo design by a logo artist.

Thanks. That's kind of what I ended up doing. Cleaned up a picture in psd, then traced it to make a vector drawing out of it.
BTW, it's for vinyl lettering at 4" tall.

Can you share that? thanks

I tried to upload the file but for some reason it gives me an invalid attachment. Send me a PM with your email and I'll email you the file.

@rosskbike I responded to your PM.

For the record, I do not have the font. What I do have is a drawing I made using the actual 75 badge, and I saved it as a vector file. I used this drawing to have the vinyl 75 decal cut from.
