Decals required

Post by SP_BOTT » Thu Aug 08, 2013 9:22 pm

Hi, decided to repaint my bike myself, after attempting one of my others lately, (and didn't think it came out too bad)

So.... where can I get a quality set of decals from, and what is included in the kit? some I've seen need paint where I thought the decals were, others just include the 'writing' etc etc

It's a G/W/B C3, and I've found the bellypan with about three layers of paint on, some of which was done on top of the original decals :) Probably going to save some weight at least.

Got the fairing and seat hump repaired and ready to start with primer. Found loads of filler and re-inforcing on broken sections which has now been cut out and welded.

+1 on the decals although I only need a set for the tank if anyone has any suggestions, greatly appreciated.

those ones on ebay [classismotorcycledecals] are image works in derby. they are more expensive than other decals. but
they would be the ones I would go for

thanks very much, just ordered the 'last set' :)

Why don't they just call themselves 'image works' on there as well, then you know the quality should be good?? :roll:

pkay, looks like they sell them individually as well.
