Schwinn Varsity Decals. Available?

Does anyone sell them for restoration?

I have seen them advertised on E-Bay. The sellers usually claim (probably falsely) that their decals are "genuine". More likely, they are modern reproductions. However, a repro decal would like nice on a restored bike, if it is well made.

I pieced together a set of Sting Ray decals on ebay recently. I saw a few Varsity decals in the process. The ones I got are indeed original. The paper and decals are somewhat yellowed and brittle. A company called hyperformance makes reproduction Sting Ray decals (the fork darts and seat tube decals are the same so these would work). I'd watch ebay.

Excellent! Thanks. Will look. Hate to toss my favorite old bike just because of rust and years if good use.
