    Peugeot Decals

    Hey guys,
    Ive got a 70s Peugeot Road bike.I have decided to sand blast it and repaint it back to how it looked fresh out of the factory. My only concern is this, how will I get a hold of the original decals? I have looked for them on ebay and they are pretty pricey. I have a friend who is great with photoshop and may be able to recreate the decals for me if I take pictures and give her the dimensions. But before I have her do that, does anyone have a computer based copy of the decals or anything else that may help me out? Any suggestions or tips will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Dan

    Got the decals for my Peugeot from a fellow in Australia. He sells on Ebay all the time and his product is first class.

    This is how my Peugeot PX10 turned out, and I painted this one with a paint brush...

    Bike looks great as is...

    Velocals are probably the best if your not going to use originals - You could also consider your own Gettocal via a Bumper Sticker...

    I looked at velocal and it does not seem like they have age Peugeot deals for my style of bike.

    Call JR at velocals (949 716 6208). Don't bother with the site unless it is in stock. Also, he's pretty busy (and is just getting over being sick), so emails are a less useful way to get a hold of him. I'm sure he has the decals you want in his catalog.

    One more vote for the Australian

    I'll also chime in and say the bike looks great as is, are there major flaws you didn't picture? It's tough to beat a factory finish and there's something to be said for a little patina.

    Umm, is it just me or does the fork look like its not quite aligned with the head tube....first picture. Could be the parallax effect from the lens or I could just be losing my perspective!

    Oh, and +1 for both vendors....

    In the first pic of my bike? You're right. It doesn't look straight. How do you fix that? I do have a interest of forks from another bike of the same era

    If its not just my imagination then, it would be great if you could post a side picture from each side plus a closer view of the head tube, top tube and down tube.

    In my experience butter has more torsional strength than Peugeot forks but it would be good to see if the head tube is bent (meaning frame damage) or if the fork legs are just pushed back (or if the whole thing is a camera trick!).

    The Australian seller on ebay is Cyclomondo. I recently picked up a decal set form him for a project. His decals are very high quality and looks as good or better than OEM decals. I would definitely buy from him again and highly recommend.
