    contact our member JRrestore, he's in the San Diego area and you don't have to send him your bike.
    BTW the guy in Australia (Greg Softley) is also very good to deal with and usually ships fast.

    Can you tell if it had any originally?
    The colored anno does fade in the UV.
    The first year or two I saw them around here, they had NO graphics.
    They did have some "engraving" on the head lugs though.

    thanks. this has leaf engravings on the head tube. the reason i know this one had decals is because there is part of one on the seat tube. its the band with the colored stripes. the original owner said that as he remembered, he took off the decals because he liked the bare aluminum. go figure?? i tried that guy in san diego but no response. oh well, i guess i may have to order from cyclomondo in austrailia. the guy i spoke to at cycleart says the austrailia decals arent that good however.
    maybe he just wanted my business but im not going to mail my bike to cyleart for a "restoration" when its just bare aluminum and it just needs decals

    Yes on both counts. Great instructions too, for wet or dry application. The decals look great. Haven't got around to applying and using them yet so can't comment on durability -- that'll be a winter project I guess.

    JR also has a website: www.velocals.com, maybe you can get a response through that.
