Ive recently got my old alpinestars cro-mega dx back it needs a respray any ideas were i can get stickers/graphics made up ??? its the non e stay version

Im also looking at fitting suspension forks to it but it has a 1 1/4 headset what are the options ???? can i get a converter to change it to 1 1/8 so i can fit modern forks ???? are there plenty of 1 1/4 suspension forks come up for sale ????

Im new on here and new to retro bikes always had new ones but when the chance to get my old alpinestars back came up i jumped at the chance always liked the way it road :D :D :D

Any vinyl-graphics firm can do that as long as you've got the originals. Gil_M is a guy here who has his own vinyl cutter and printer and as I understand it can reproduce whatever is needed.

I'll leave that for others, susp. isn't my thing on these bikes, and beyond that I only know dirt/jump-forks and hardly even that, hehe...

If you bought a new bike in 1991 it's vintage now, hehe... I'm among them who reverted back to this stüff even though (as a street/dirtrider) I've been into steel hardtails since day one - some 20+ years ago now...

Yeh, pm gil_m about the decals. If he has them on file, they are very cheap!
