Gil_M on these forums can reproduce decals. As can a few companies scattered around the web, so dont give up on it for the sake of decals :)

(hi by the way, im the chap who suggested you try searching here)

Chances of getting a 15+ year old Clockwork that hasn't been or doesn't need restoring are very slim. They are the sort of bike that people rode, their not Kleins :wink:

Your Lava Dome is a 1991 :)

As for my decals, yeah Gil did them. They are very good and once on the bike you wouldn't know they are repro.

You say your stays are full of holes... Rusted through or just paint chips? If it were my frame, i'd pay for it to be restored to it's former glory rather than buy a new one. Then again i actually think that steel bikes have a soul :)

the frame has rust holes in the stays, but i think you may be right getting the old love of my life restored is the way forward as you say steel is the way and like you i beleive they are living
