Bianchi Trofeo Decals

Hi everyone, I haven't posted here much before but I recently purchased a Bianchi Trofeo after my Campione was stolen from inside my home. It's too nice in NY to not have a bike so I found this guy on CL.



It's definitely a '98 Trofeo as you can see the outlines of the decals that were removed for whatever reason by a previous owner.










The group is original (Campy Avanti) but it has some other newer parts including a new headset, stem that I need to replace with a shorter one, and specialized saddle. Here's the original specs:

My question is if anyone knows where you can find decals for a bike like this. I have googled a fair amount and haven't even found an image of this bike in the silver paint job, let alone decals sets for a Trofeo in general. Here is a larger image of what they looked like on clean, new bike, but the silver one I'm guessing had black decals.





UPDATE:

So after searching a while longer, I found some info on what the bike used to looks like. This person shared a bunch of images of their with decals still on it, yet they painted the lugs black for whatever weird reason...

I also found this ****ty image...



Celeste decals with black borders. On the other hand my internet prowling has still come up empty in terms of actually finding these decals, so if anyone knows of ways to obtain them, please let me know!

There are several sellers on eBay who reprint bike decals. While they usually sell vintage decals, if you gave them a picture of the decals that you need, they could probably make you a set for around $40. Look up vintage bike decals on eBay and contact a seller who is selling a lot of them.
