I've managed to get the poor condition decals off the bike and I'm going to use my limited photoshop skills to try and make some decent jpegs out of them that I can use to get decals made up. This will take some time, but when I'm finished I'll send copies of the jpegs to anyone interested.
I'm not very technical but I think I understand that vector files are more suitable for graphics production, so once I manage to complete the images I would be interested in your offer. It will be some time though before they're ready as things are a bit hectic at the moment as I'm retiring in a month and doing a lot of work on sorting out my business records and tax matters.
Thanks alpadam & dminor for the interest (dminor - many thanks and I will message you)
Because of the usual problem of too many projects, some technical problems, and my usual lack of any sense of urgency things have slid a bit. But I've now got my act together and made some progress. The frame has been powdercoated and I've got all the components I need to put it together in a broadly period-correct way. Good decals would be the icing on the cake.
Here are some pics of the frame and the draft down tube decal.
Alpadam, I'd be interested in comparing any work you've done on the decals
Haha, a lot of image that will almost need to stay as pixel-based file file - - if the resolution is high enough. Let me know what your file's native resolution is and you may have reproducible quality as-is.
Hi, sorry for not getting back to this thread. Your image looks good. I have just finished tracing the decals off my crII frame. Next step is to scan and begin the painful transformation to something printable.... Certainly have a project on my hands now .
