What on earth persuaded them to abandon those lush graphics for their new Halfords decals?!

those are already the later and imho less nice decals. the original ones which were used until 2001 i think are (even) more minimalistic and sleek looking. the current ones are horrible though, i agree...

M & E should be together?

These are too old?

yes, M and E should be merged. the ones on the pic are too young. they used them from 2002 to 2005 or 06. before M and E were merged like on Kai's frame.

also the (nice) brass head tube badge is too young for your frame. originally it had a decal on there. it obviously was refurbished in 2002 or later.

Thanks Carsten!

Seller told me that decals are not originals.

So, those what you linked at other topic, what you have scanned are correct ones?
