Can anyone here make these? The headtube is probably a tough call and the existing decals are not too bad, but the RH DT script is pretty crumbled ( LH pic shown as this is best shot )

grateful for any help on this one... :)

Wow!

I like the colours of the pantographing and the fork crowns a lot.

I think it looks great. I particularly like the decals as they are.

Gives a good sense of age and class.

Where did you get it from?

Love the drilled group! I agree the decals don't look that bad.

I'm wondering, how are you going to stop the fork crown from rusting?

basically, I can't! I can get it rechromed or just give it a good scrub with copper wool and wax it once in a while.... :lol:
