I've pretty much decided that my Gran Sport build is a keeper so in the near future I will be sending the frame off for a proper respray. I would like to restore the original Raleigh downtube logo, which is the same form as this one:

I have already looked through the H Lloyd catalogue, nothing showing up there. I have emailed Nick direct, but in the meantime:

- has anyone else produced a decal file for this logo?
- if not, does anyone know which font this is?

The font looks like its been based on any number of san serif types such as helvitca/univers etc, moreover its probably be drawn up specially as a logotype.

Thanks Mike... I've gone all the way through every font on my PC and none of the sans serif types quite works! Luckily H Lloyd have confirmed they do in fact have this, even though its not in their catalogue. Saved!
