Trek Decal

I have a 1993 2300 Trek...but its missing its 2300 logos and it doesn't seem that they were ever there. Could you order them without the numbers?

Why would you want to add corporate logos? Removing them I can understand. But adding them makes no sense to me. Do you worry you'll forget what company made your bike or what model it is and need to be reminded each time you approach the bike? Did you get such a good deal on the bike that you feel you owe them some advertising to make things even? Maybe your worried that so many people will want to know what company made your bike that telling them will take up a lot of your time, so you add the company's name. Really; why would you add corporate logos to a product that you own and has multiple logos on it already.
I'm not making fun or crapping on your decision; I just am totally baffeled and would like to know.

The main reason people add brand stickers to their bikes is to preserve its stock, out of the factory looks. There is nothing wrong with a bike with no logos on it, but a lot of people like the look of their bike as it was bought, and want to replace the decals after a paintjob was completed.
