I think the decals are fine. See this 1983 Bullseye hub ad...

yes I think also :)

I took looks in the bmx museum and found a 1984 catalog and it shows the same decals as your hubs.

my first choice for my yeti was also bullseye hubs, but I prefer cassette driving and no freewheel drive, so I changed to 730 xt.

cheers

Mombat has a few other ads for Bullseye hubs.
It looks like the logo changed in 1982 - the March ad features the older style logo, the December ad the newer logo

Stunning work 8), i would'nt have the patience for a totaly period correct build, the yellow bars are a great choice, are you going to spec other yellow bits to match ?

Will the bike be a rider ?

Yellow will only be used on the bar. I have a white saddle, crank, cables and hubs.
