Paramount/World Voyageur Transition Decals

Hi,
Would anyone be able to tell me the width of the transition decals on the chainstays, seat stays and forks for aParamount and a World Voygeur from the early 1970's? Mike Swantak is creating a decal set for my Paramount restoration and he asked if I could find out. I also need a set for my World Voyageur. I am pretty sure they are the same black & white decals. If anyone could let me know I would be grateful.

Thanks,

Brian

I can measure the Voyageur decals. Which ones are the transition decals?

Kerk,

Thanks! They are the black & white bands around the chainstays, seat stays and fork.

Brian,

Make sure he keeps his masters for this project - there will still be a day when I've got the spare space and money to pick up a frame. That's very high on my wish list.

Will Do! Mike keeps a pretty extensive library of previous work, so I am sure he will keep it.

The bands are white/black/white and each color is 1/8" thick.

Fender1,

Are you certain the Paramount used decals and not real pinstripes? I can measure the fork decals on my '79 Traveler later today and get back to you, but my guess is that they are about 1/4 inch wide white with a black 1/16 inch stripe in the middle.
