New Scapin Decals in Yellow

August 25, 2017

Yellow Scapin decal setA Customer recently requested a set of Scapin stickers in Yellow for the restoration of his Blue Scapin frame.  Always a good combination of colours and one that I have on one of my Moser frames (we reproduce decals for those too!).

Scapin bicycles are probably not well-known.  They should be, though, because their quality and performance is up there with the best of Italian. If you are lucky enough to obtain one of their frames, we hope that you will restore it to glory with our decals.

Mairag Decal SetGreat Swiss hand-made bicycles!  Great decals!  We created these for one of our long-standing clients who appreciates the quality of our work.  In this era, Mairag made frames designated 5 Star, 4 Star or 3 Star according to the level of specification.  5 Star was just the absolute tops, but the others are super quality too.  This set comes with 5 stars for each side of the top tube.  If you have a 3 or 4 Star frame, just cut off the unwanted stars before application.

Late 1970s Gitane Decal Set

1978 Gitane Decals - WhiteThese are famous decals as on Bernard Hinault’s Tour de France winning bike.  They look especially good on a Gitane Racing Blue frame – there is one here:  http://classiclightweights.net/france/gitane/1977-gitane/.   We have also created a Black version of these decals as fitted to lighter-coloured frames.

We have more Gitane decals/stickers coming to meet the needs of discerning collectors and restorers.  Click on the image to see where you can buy these decals.

September 8, 2016

1979 koga-miyata-pro-luxeWe are pleased to have been involved with Pedal Pedlar in the restoration of this beautiful Koga-Miyata Pro-Luxe which was specially commissioned for display at the new Uniqlo flagship store in Oxford Street, London, England.  The decals were required quickly to meet a deadline and by working cooperatively we all achieved that.  The result is stunning.  These decals are readily available on our website and we are currently working on more Koga-Miyata decals, so please let us know if you need anything that is not on our website.

Picchio Special Decals

March 23, 2016

Picchio_SET_201We have just introduced a new set of reproduction Picchio Special decals.  Picchio being one of Italy’s famous master frame builders who built frames for many professional riders under other names.  We have more Picchio decals under development, so please ask if you have any requirements – we may be able to supply what you need.

We are juSomec_SET_100Tst in the process of introducing sets of Somec “pixellated” decals; initially in just a few colours with more to follow – just ask if you don’t see what you want.

This is part of our ongoing efforts to provide restorers with the best reproduction decals available.  We particularly concentrate on those which are not available elsewhere or where here is a need for better quality reproductions.

 

Masi Special Decals

January 21, 2016

Masi_SET_200TWe are developing new decal sets at an unprecedented rate to meet the needs of classic bicycle restorers and enthusiasts.  One of the latest is this set of Masi Special decals, available initially in red, as shown, and white.  We will introduce new colours as they are requested by customers – the turnaround time for new colours is very quick and we simplify stock keeping by doing new colours on demand.  The sets come with Alberto Masi signatures in two colours so that customers can fit whichever is best for the colour scheme of their frames.

New Faliero Masi Decals

August 24, 2015

Masi_SET_100If you are fortunate enough to have one of these beautifully crafted frames that you want to renovate,  then these are the best reproduction decals available.  We have just added these to our catalogue after creating them from scans of one of the few unused original decal sets available, so they are unsurpassed for accuracy.

At the moment they are only available with yellow lettering, but we can quickly produce them in other colours if required.

Raleigh_SET_1000We are now making available probably the best reproductions of transfers for Raleigh Record Ace models of the 1940s and 1950s.

Check out our website here: http://bicycledecals.net/raleighdecals.htm

We are offering this very ornate set, initially with silver panels but other combinations available on request, as well as a simpler set without the decorative panels.

Also available for the first time are decals patterned after the ones on those gorgeous red team bikes of the 1950s, as ridden by Reg Harris and other great riders.  We might be able to do custom letters for the seat tube, where the team bikes had the rider’s initials.  If you want these please ask.  I know there are a few of these bikes around (not many though!) that likely need refinishing, and a few replicas too.  There are images of the one I used to own here: http://classiclightweights.net/united-kingdom/raleigh/1955-raleigh-track/

 

A E Elsegood Minster Cycles Decals TransfersReproduction transfers are now available for A.E. Elsegood Minster Cycles of York.  These are really attractive decals previously unavailable.  These bicycles are not very common of course and likely many have lost their identity because reproduction transfers were not readily available until now.

However, if you are fortunate enough to own, or find, one of these, it is good to know that you can restore it to its former glory with accurate reproductions of the original transfers.
