Tange...Where's the love?

All I can find online are Columbus and Reynolds repro tubing decals.

Where can I get some Tange decals?

I love my Tange tubed bikes, and want to show them the love that they deserve.

Thanks.

I too have an affinity for Tange. Decals pop up on the bay from time to time:

I can't just "make them". I can't afford to have someone just "make them" as well. I've worked at a sign shop, and it's not that simple.

Easy tiger...
You can make some basic decals at home if you try some of the creative options that have been discussed in the forums. Will they be top quality? No. But they might get you something for your own bikes while you look.

Your choices are simple and few.

Find an original decal for little or no cash but you probably won't.

Make a decal yourself with a camera using a printer and decal paper and save money but this does require some skill.

Pay the price and purchase the decal(s) you need. Do not be fooled by the fact that a decal is just a piece of paper. They are pretty expensive to purchase, these days.

Cost isn't much the issue. It's quality I care about. That's why I don't care much for some do-it-yourself print-job. I've seen Tange 1 stickers included in whole decal sets. I just want the Tange sticker by itself. I'm repainting my Nishiki International and want to put a Tange 1 sticker back on it like original. It's the only decal I care about. VeloCals has the whole set that I would need for the International, but not in the right color.

Definitely try VeloCals. He shows a Tange Prestige MTB decal as one of his regular stock, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's made other tubing decals as part of complete sets:

I've got decals for Tange CrMo Double Butted Tubing, Tange 900, Tange Infinity, Tange #2, Tange Infinity MTB, Tange MTB and Tange MTB OS. Sorry, no Tange #1, but I thought I should mention what I do have, in case others are in need. These are OEM decals, not reproductions.

If you get me a very good, clean photo to reference from, and you're not in a terrible hurry, I am willing to make a water slide decal for you. Call it good karma for the day.

Also, the seller in this auction (while he doesn't list Tange decals) may be able to help. I ordered the 531 decals from him and he's very into C&V bikes. He may point you in the right direction. A quick email may help you get what you're looking for.

Here's the bike I want one for:







The Tange 1 sticker on my Ironman was also removed by some dumb butt, so I'd ideally want 2.

Thanks guys, I'll do some more digging.

Talk with the guys who do bike repro decals and see if they can sell you just the frame sticker if it's part of a set. I don't see why that wouldn't be easy to do.

Here's what VeloCals has, but not in pink/magenta. I guess I could change the frame color, but I don't know. I like the pink/metallic gray combo. I've been trying to get ahold of VeloCals for nearly a week to no avail.

Might I suggest scanning them with a flatbed scanner and posting the resulting jpegs up here. Especially since they're in pristine condition. Would make great templates.

Decal man down with the flu.

Been sick with the flu, terrible stuff, in bed most of the time. I'm feeling a little bit better today.

I have the Tange 1 blue background available and I can make the Nishiki International set pink / magenta color.
