    NYC,

    There are Trek Decals available but they are sometimes difficult to come by.
    www.koolbikes.com does decals, but I'm not sure that they sell without a paint job.
    This is going to be the problem at alot of shops.
    Don't bother with contacting TREK, I did and they said they could provide new
    decals not old ones.
    You might check with other frame painters (cyclart, Joe Bell etc.) and keep
    an eye out on e-bay.
    I just checked on Skip Echerts trek site www.vintagetrek.com and he lists some
    resources for decals.
    just out of curiosity, what year you looking for?

    Not sure what year I am looking for, honestly, but it is classic late 70s early 80s Trek. I haven't done that much research on the frame. It just fits my girlfriend really well and I am interested in sprucing it up. She has it set up as a fixed gear, so I'd like to shave off the cable guides, powder coat it and put on new decals. It's a sweet little bike we got for real cheap, and she is short and hard to fit, so I'd like to make it into something special.

    I have a 1980 Trek 400 or 500 series. The only decal is the Constructivist style TREK lettering on the seat tube. I'm not sure if you'll be able to get that decal, but at least it's only two (one for each side).

    It's on FGG from like 2 days ago if you want a visual. I think that you could probably find that decal for relatively cheap on eBay or something.

    If you are looking to ID the bike, model year etc. you can do so at Vintage Trek.
    If you want post the Serial Number here and I'll do the lookup (although its
    not all that difficult on Skip's website).
    He also has catalogues so you can get an idea of what it looked like
    when new.
