Looked pretty good as it was, but I must agree that generation of decals wasn't Kona's best by a long way, so you may well be able to improve on it.
Having just had a set of proofs for a 1994 Kona from Gil_M that (a) are not much good, and (b) come with a £29 price tag, I'll be interested to see how your home-made ones look. Isn't it difficult to find suitable material to print onto though? Maybe easier if they are clear coated over?
To be honest, it looked completely different... new cranks, saddle, bars, stem, brakes, shifters/levers
I have yet to decide on a final material to print onto, however speaking to the design and printing guys at work, I think something suitable should be available.... oh, and they are not home-made, we are a printing and signage company... silk screen, digital printing, and 3D illuminated lettering is what we manufacture... in fact you have probably been past at least 2 of our signs already today
As for the clear-coat idea, I have thought of that, and have some sparkly ideas rattling around as we speak
