Here ya go. Jamis Coda Sport, taken with the god awful camera on my Nokia
edecals.com for some decals. they looked great and even sent extras. I was pretty impressed with their professionalism. I don't know about reflective, but I know they have mirror finish.
Applied Graphics that are made for motorcycle helmets. The material really flashes up well when light hits it. You will get plenty of pre-cut pieces that are about the right shape and lengths for the various tubes of the frame.
Fresh from her first winter commute. My phone was cold so it took a really crappy picture.
This is what happened to my bike earlier that day. The sidewalk plows got to her
My Nishiki , it's my only bike, she's well worn but she moves. When I'm able I plan on getting a new bike and just fixing this one up until then she's my ride.
I just put these studded tires on that I bought "used" (basically brand new - no missing studs) for $40. We'll see how it goes - everything was covered in ice today.
All ready for poor weather!

Here is my 2004 Kona Cinder Cone frame converted into a commuter. This bike has been a front suspension 26" cross-country racer, a rigid single speed 69'er (for racing) and now this...
I put it together like this over the past few weeks with spare parts from the "bin". I did recently purchase the Velo Orange touring bars for a more upright ride but everything else comes from my parts bin of miscellaneous odds and ends. Interesting point: The fenders are Planet Bike 29'er fenders. Adjusting the rods makes them fit 26'ers just fine with an added benefit of actually giving a fuller radius of fender around the wheels. Much more splash protection and kinda cool looking for fenders.

' tis the season..
that nishiki is nice, but what's up with the brake lever placement? seems really awkward. repaired a bike that had the levers like that recently and test riding it was weird as hell, but his was really janky, saddle sloping way forward, etc... so I couldn't narrow down just how weird the levers were.
I don't know its just comfortable to me I guess...
Digging the wood rack-platform. Is it DIY?
