This is a bit frustrating. At one time you couldn't find any Bottecchia replacement decals at all. Now they are proliferating on eBay. Unfortunately, none of them are correct. I supposed I'm partly to blame for that. A couple of years back I was working with one of our forum members at the time (JRestore) who makes decals on perfecting Bottecchia decals but I got sidetracked and we never completed the task. If you're still out the JRestore, we can pick up where we left off and I'll send you some actual Bottecchia decals that I pulled off a frame. Not in good condition but they would work for obtaining the graphics. Anyway, all of these have problems in the ovals that acclaim the Bottecchia World and Italian championships. The upper and lower edges of the ovals should be at the edges of the championships stripes but in all of these, they have space at the edge. Also, the font in the ovals is not correct and the curve of the ends on some of them are not correct. If anyone is producing decals I'd be happy to work with them to insure they are accurate.
