Super Course foil decals- help?

I've recently acquired a 70s Raleigh Super Course and am looking to replace the two foil stripe decals on the seat tube. I've searched high and low and have had no luck. Resources, anyone?

I recommend getting in touch with Nick at H Lloyd Cycles. I looked on their website and didn't find them. But, that doesn't mean they aren't available.

If it is just the stripes, you may be able to get vinyl tape from an auto parts store- wider silver stipes for the main bit, and white pinstripes for the accents.

+1 .
I went with gold pinstripes on this one though.
