I own one 'toons' old frame but have no decals. I have some pics that I've found on the net but they are not that clear.

I'd be very interested in getting a set made.

Have you tried giving Mr Funk a shout

http://www.285.us/main.htm

He seems to have now bought his own name back from creditors and is making bikes with his name on them again, and the decals he is using are the same as back in the day.

There was a real interesting story about him in one of the mags over here recently, blamed his downfall soley on nickel plated suspension fork legs (not an excuse you'll hear everyday!). Apparently the plating was too weak and caused the legs to bend by the time they realised there was an issue it was all too late and they were left with huge debts in replacements and insurance liabilty.

I fondly remember my funk as one of the coolest bikes I ever owned, beautiful!
