Chaser where did you get the decals, Are they the ones on the bay? What were they like to apply etc? Sterling job, looks great!
Thanks for that
I worked with a local printer to refine the decals from old pics. He was really great... a young MTB fan too, so he was quite keen to help me.
There was some guesswork involved on the frame material decal but it looks very original after a bit of tweaking. It even has my frame number on it.
The main Dyna-Tech decal is 100% correct. It was scanned from an old advert in MBUK and then scaled up to the correct size. The one on ebay is too small and I wanted it in black with a white keyline.
They were quite easy to apply as they came on clear tape so that you can still see what you are doing when you have peeled the backing off and have to position them on the frame. The letters are individually cut so they look really crisp.
Forks and rear stays also have the correct vertical decal which are also reproductions.
The RSP decal is original - Ben [off the forum, don't know his UN, met him at cannock Chase] very kindly sent it to me . I have a scan of it too so it could be copied and re-created. The ebay one looks very good too.
If you would like the printers details just let me know.
Headtube badge is an lightweight aluminium version of the 'Heron' - NOS one off ebay, It was for a smaller diameter tube but it was quite easy to mould being alloy.
Hope this helps.
