does anyone have a close up of the "Defiant" decal on the top tube, or can take a photo of it from their bike? trying to finish up reproduction decals but mine are incomplete in some parts on both sides so can't very the font treatment on some letters. :(

ok, found only this one decent photo to work from. even though it's not ideal, it still gave me some sense of what minor tweaks needed to be done on the stock font characters to modify it to better match the original. if i'm not prompted with any better reference, this will be making it's way as the final repro decal for the frame.

They look good Frank, and the bike is looking sharp. Another fantastic build. Well done!
