He's back ....

And now in tri colour 8) You just can't keep a good man down ... :lol:

Top service from Velocals - very quick to the UK and very good quality 8)

Check out the nice sharp edges & clear shapes :

It's the best way I could photo them sorry :-( I peeled the backing off one just enough to see the colour and compare to the headset and it's a great match. I covered it up again quickly though and I defo wasn't going to mess around with the camera trying to capture it :lol:

They are thin, very thin ... 8) It's easy to tell that as I can't feel the difference between the backing paper and where the decal starts - even with my baby soft 'office skin' fingers ... :lol:

WD :D

She's come a long way for sure, loving the attention to detail and the outcomes so far. Nice detective work on the history, I've no idea if the guy I bought it off obtained it from eBay or if there are more links in the chain though.

Great thread, but please don't put disc tabs on that Ti fork, it's not safe, better try to source a steel YO or BOI fork ....... not easy or cheap I know ;)
Good luck with the project

Thanks for the comments 8) If you have a spare Yo fork (at sensible money :lol:), please let me know ... ;-)

I got a little garage time tonight so another small repair, unfortunately I thought I had a photo of the (small) dint before I started the repair, but I didn’t … :-(

At least it's got the nice conical form back :
