    Ok, I give up, I'm writing this off as just another lesson in the risks of buying from an unknown web site.

    But I'd still like to restore the logo on my Moto. Can anyone recommend another custom decal source?

    Cyclart can provide decals, but you have to have them paint the bike.

    You'll really have something to complain about:

    You are just showing your age, when I grew up contractions were the norm, assy. Blvd. Ave. , now its the clic of the acronym.

    And I have no Idea what FIFY represents, but it sounds close to that poodle with a mohawk.

    To the original poster, who guessed instead of tests, may this be the biggest problem in your life.
    Buy replacements from somewhere and have a professional apply them.

    Actually I was typing. Writing you would require postage,your address and my time and I don't believe you're worth any of them. Have a nice day.

    $45.00 for decals makes one a bit *** shy but, I just pulled the trigger and will have a shop here in Portland do the installation.

    Ordered the White Motobecane decals.

    I'm the OP. I just got an email reply from JR - he says his computer crashed a week ago. He's going to send me some new decals along with better (or different) instructions, and I guess we'll clarify what they actually are (waterbase or not) and how to apply them. So, maybe things will be made right.

    I love my Schwinn Super Sport decals that I got from JR. I am wondering how Scooper got white ones though. Only black appeared on Velocals website.

    You're not limited to the decals shown on the website. He does custom work. He made me some Super Champion wheel stickers and only charged me $5.

    JR/Velocals puts out great product in my experience. The service is good as well, other than the well-known part about getting JR's attention in the first place.

    Your iPhone overheated and shut down? Your iPad overheated and shut down? If so, that's terrible. You should contact Apple.

    To the OP please tell me how everything goes. I ordered some Motobecane decals from JR about 2 weeks ago and have not received the decals. I have emailed him multiply times and PMed him on here with no response.

    Not to mention Macbooks which crack their LCD screen hinges, which have a going rate of about $75 on the used market - if you're not under warranty. Of course, unlike everyone else's hinges, which cost $1.25.

    Need I bring up battery and harddrive access?

    LCD hinges? So, you own an iPhone or iPad that has experienced this problem?

    The white ones are listed as an optional letter color choice below the add to cart box.
