|I have this plain black frame that I want to make look like a thousand bucks. So I was wondering if anyone knew where I could obtain some decals from bike frame makers (Cannondale,Klein etc) that resemble the ones that they put on the downtube?|

|usually the only way to get decals is to get a shop to verify the manufacture and order them for you. Even than companies such as raleigh still won't give them too you. Occasionally some will show up on ebay. TTFN|

|After getting my older frame repainted and discovering that the original manufacturer is NLA, finding a decla kit was impossible. So, I went out and bought the best quality transfer paper I could find (transparent with a sticky back - like sticker paper). Use a high quality laser color printer. I opened up Photoshop and Illustrator, and recreated the decal set quite accurately.
A good exacto knife and my bike looks great again.

|I don't know how big the file is that you made the logo, but, assuming you still have it saved, I was wondering if you could send me the file. Of course, I would be willing to pay you for time spent.
BTW, what company did you make a facsimile of, and would it look decent on a black frame?
