Chainstay Protector stickers, where to get this one?

This is a long shot, but are these stickers still available or are reproductions made? This is off a mid 1990s Trek 470, and the one I had was a material like Gaffers Tape with Trek printed in...

hahahaha, this one is really great. I've had similar crashes, always screwing around at extremely slow speeds. I haven't wiped out at high speed since I was a kid (knock on wood).

Spare parts before your group set gets "old"

I recently went from a 9 speed setup (6500 and 7700) to 11 speed (6800) partially because I was getting frustrated with parts availability. I couldn't justify spending $140+ on used shifters that...
