Original Decals Thread

Recommended Posts

I've been working on a replica bike of a friend or mine's now for a while. I finally got this old frame sticker off, flipped around and on to the top tube. I'll be finished with this one real soon.

 

I don't know how it came to be on the bottom tube, maybe someone replaced it or moved it way back in the day to be like a lot of other bikes with it on the down tube?, I don't know, but I've had this one about 7-8 years and you can tell it's been on there way before I ever got it.

I was pretty happy to get it off in one piece. With the little holes and tears in it, I was kind of worried about this one.

Unfortunately 100% of the sticky stuff stayed on the frame, but some super strong spray adhesive did the trick.

This should work.

Re-mounting an original decal.

Very cool! Glad you were able to save the decals. :)

I can't believe we haven't seen this since August... seems like last month or so.

 

Time flies.

 

I'm so impressed with what you did there, Don... holy smokes, that's a clinic on next level restoration.

I already posted this in another thread, but since this thread has to do with original decals, I thought I would post it here too. This is hand-made clear plexiglas number plate. Mine from bitd, 1978/1979. The stickers were all bought bitd.

 

That would be a real headtube decal for an early Redline (the size is the same) but I think it was a BITD re-pop because it is on clear plastic and not white plastic. I think they were repopping decals even back then ! Maybe someone else knows...

Notice the Hutch decal. Back then Hutch was a BMX mail order shop where I got a lot of parts.

This plate survived about 25 years in my parent's basement. Got lucky on that one.

DG "Green Duck" cruiser decals. If you look at the bottom right of the decal is says DG in smaller text.

Once built DIRECT LINK by REACH

 

That Direct Link is clean. Those were built in Mesa, AZ. by my good buddy Woody Woodruff. He still has the original 4 Team rider frames. I believe he has some t-shirts and decals left as well. Cool bikes and he still builds custom bikes to this day. Here's a shot of a Custom one off 26" race bike he built me back in 2000. It's all Easton tubed frame and fork.Checl the Profile 3-speed set-up in the rear with the RRS'ish rear drop outs!! Oh, yea, all OG decals too! :ThumbsUp:
