Here you go guys, im looking to jump on board if someone can get them printed up, Usually the more printed the cheaper the cost per decal.
But i need Gold with Black outlining and as mentioned above i know of a few others that are keen as well.

Measurements
Head badge - 64mm high 45mm wide

Downtube - 152mm wide + 3mm clear boarder
22mm high + 3mm clear boarder
Gold print - 6mm
Black outline - 2mm

Probably cheaper to just get them printed onto a rectangle clear peice rather than getting them cut out around the script.

You guys have any luck?
If I can get the decals then I'll probably get my 1985 Apollo V repainted to it's original colour (it was repainted once before) and do a full restoration.
It would be well worth my time and trouble.
Cheers,
Stuart.

My LBS has a set of Apollo decals on eBay, gold lettering with black outline. Might be worth buying them and scanning for others to use?

Just wondering where this thread finished up...i was looking to attempt to peel off one of my apollo decals and give it to a sign writer friend , but it looks very brittle. Can anyone provide me with a good quality scan ? Or am I clutching at straws :cry:
Also what are the chances of seeing some pics of these Apollo V's .....dang Im jealous !!!

I've sent a heap of pics of decals off my bikes with measurements to Greg at Cyclomondo after asking him if he could do them, he wasn't busy so asked me to send him what I had. I sent him a message last week asking if everything I'd sent him was ok but he didn't respond...

so... hopefully we'll have some soon.

About halfway down the page you'll find the decals. Lixy did a decal order with her printing firm every couple of months (info correct as of a couple of years ago).

Cheers,

Stuart
