    I need a picture of a Surly decal

    I am fixing up a Cross Check and I need a picture of the 'Fatties Fit Fine' decal. I repainted the frame and bought decals for it. which are great, but they did not, and will not come with the 'Fatties Fit Fine' decal anymore. I would like to replace it, but I can find a decent picture to recreate it from.

    I bought some water slide ink jet paper to make the decal, but I need a picture.

    Thanks,
    Ian

    Thanks, I already did, but there was nothing great. I am working on a picture now, but it takes a long time unless I can get a large picture to start with.

    Out of curiousity I did some image searches on line. Found some rather scary things involving overweight people doing some things that really ought to remain VERY private
