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 was wondering then...Brian T

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?
