Nervex professionnel late 60ís - decal help

Hello everyone!

Iím currently on final stage to send my 1969 PX10 to repaint and as off the past few months Iíve been trying to recreate its decals as close as possible to the original.

I got this Nervex one printed but it came back and fully golden base which Iím unsure itís correct.



Could anyone help me identify if this is the correct visual for this decal and if possible send some pictures of a original Nervex decal?

Thank you!

"usually" when have seen this transfer in place it exhibits a white ground

IIRC the Spanish after-market replica transfer maker offers them in that configuration

I would have no problem using that decal unless you are doing an absolute full on concourse restoration, cool as heck and plenty close enough especially if it was actually an original version at all.

I may be interested in that decal if you don't end up using it.

Here's the one Greg Softley (Cyclomondo) sells:

I've found his decals to be accurate and durable, and he's a great guy. Shipping from Australia adds a little time but it seemed to me they were here in short order (don't remember how long exactly).

Here's the photo I just took of my genuine original decal that came with a set of lugs.



Looks more yellow than gold, but I'd rather have yours than an original one any day! This orignal one looks like a word the censor won't let me type.

I recall a metallic ink way back, kind of dull actually.

I would inquire with Gus Salmon. He does water slide, not sure if this is in his offerings. Worth a shot.
ĎI fully comprehend the Designer Standards.
why settle for mediocrity when perfection is within reach?

As an aside, often the gold lug lining gets rather dull over the decades too.

Yes Gus does great work. He made custom decals for me and I couldn't be happier. He also made suggestions that made them better than what I orignally asked him for. He's got a good eye.
