Hi everyone - this is my first post. I hope you can help. I'm modernising a Schwinn World Sport 1986. I have the original parts (2 x chainrings, derailleurs, rear cassette (5 sprockets), brakes, "suicide" break levers) but not wheel rims, hubs, or saddle.
I'm intending on converting it to a single speed by removing the large chain ring and then installing a flip-flop hub on the rear wheel - AND - hopefully putting some more modern break calipers onto it. I have other road bikes and just need a commuter bike to get to work.
In addition, I'm then having the frame resprayed - as the frame is slightly rusty. This will be a black matte/gloss (TBD) - rather than the existing marine blue paint job.
However, I need some decals to go with the bike once it is resprayed. I would like to have some decals like the original ones (Schwinn World Sport - 1986 model). If they hard to come be I could live with some more modern decals.
Do you know a good & reputable supplier of Schwinn decals in the US? Or preferably in the UK? - I live in the UK now (but grew up in the US until early teens) hence why I have a Schwinn bike (they are not really sold over in the UK)
(For interest - this is a project of mine to develop a better understanding of bike repair/refurb but more importantly this bike was my dad's and I have good memories of going for bike rides with him when I was growing up).
