This is perhaps an odd request but I too have a 1984 Oyster Corsa which I bought from new. At one point (many years ago) the original seatpin corroded into the tubes and required heat to remove it. No big deal but it damaged the original paint around the seat pin so I would like to repaint it back to original spec.
Here's the point... The original decal set is unavailable from Raleigh and the only decal remaining on mine is the RALEIGH pinstripe on the downtube. I have found a guy that may be able to replicate the other decals if I can get good enough images and dimensions.
I was wondering whether you'd be willing to photograph and measure the "Corsa" script on the toptube and "Handbuilt in England" decal on the seat tube?
Any help would be appreciated.
Glad to help if I can.
I know I have a couple of the seatpost decals somewhere...might take some finding, and of course I can take some decent photos - of the Corsa script.
I can take images of both if time is an issue, if not I can look for the seat tube decal first.
P.S I have a set of unused original (Shimano 105"Golden Arrow") brake calipers & levers (hoods are a little frilly but not too bad) if you are interested - £30 posted to a UK address.
