...chances are if it's a '97 Kona I already have them on file
I am far from looking for work but you will find original waterslide decals hard to fit and far from durable, they are great if you fit them straight away but over time they dry out and become hard to remove from the backing sheets. If they are fitted they will need a clear coat to protect them, without the clear coat they will scratch very easily.
The main advantage is they are very thin and flat back easily when clear coated and can withstand oven temperatures when the clear coat is baked
It makes me laugh when you see sets of 10+ year old original waterslide decals sell on ebay for big money, you know the poor buyer will have a devil of a job fitting them, I know what I am doing with them and it took me well over 3 hours to fitt a set of Original Colnago decals for a friend. He had paid over the odds for them and they were a nighmare to fit and even with a clear coat they didn't look that good...
Just my opinion, but if you do fit them take your time and I hope you have a lot of patience
