bike painting and decals for old Gioshank

I live in Pasadena, Ca. and I want to have my 85 Gios painted on a budget. I found someone to do it but need decals. Any ideas?

Sells Gios frames and replacement decals for the new models. They may not be exactly the same as those on a old frame.

C-40 is correct. A complete set of Gios decals costs $24.95 at Excel -- www.excelsports.com

If you order from them, make sure you specify it's for a steel frame (I'm assuming your '85 is steel). The aluminum frame decals are bigger, I think, to account for the larger tubing diameters.

Excel has other Gios accessories, as well, like bottle cages, touch-up paint, head-tube badges, etc.

Hi Hank,
Talk to Steve Martin (no kidding!) at
He did sets of decals in varying sizes for my Bertoni based on discussions of type faces. He can duplicate most type sizes, styles and designs, and he's not expensive at all.
