    Help finding 1980's Schwinn Madison Decals

    I'm usually pretty good at finding stuff on the net, but these 1980's Schwinn Madison Decals have been difficult to find, Velo cals doesn't carry any and there's nothing on e-bay. I found an 80's Schwinn Madison that had been powder coated thus loosing it's decals and head badge. Determining the year has been a bit difficult so I figure any of the 80's Madison decals would be okay. Something like this

    We need pics of the Madison. If I recall correctly, the Madison was produced only for about three years in the mid 80's.

    The powder coat appears to be very heavy. I checked the bottom bracket for a serial number but there's nothing. The paint might have covered it or I am not sure if these had a number stamped there. The sugino bottom bracket, sealed head set and lugs match those stock on a madison as well as the size of the frame. The seat post bolt, seat post, stem, bars, wheels and crank are not original to the bike. It came with a 70's 170mm campagnolo strada crank when I got it, but it would hit the seat stay so I removed it. It currently has a cheap single speed crank I had laying around and a Brooks sprinter saddle
