Hey Longshot,

Just flip over to the "For Sale" section and read down to the bottom of the thread.

Rody still has some sets, making more.

Cheers, bt

You rock!
All my decals long peeled off in the harsh Aussie sun. getting ready for a rebuild of the ol' 92 Wicked...solid fork is going back on, too. I'd be looking for a set of white decals for my black frame.
Thank you in advance!!!!!!

[QUOTE=Doug Carter;3868]Reproduction Fat decals are in the works, guys. No more waiting around for Wendyll to send you the decals you paid for 6 months ago. No more hoping for the correct colors and styles to still be available. The goal is to have repros eventually available in every combination for every bike that Fat Cogs want to restore to original condition. I donno if it will ever completely be done, but the ball is at least rolling.

To start with, I decided that the current decals that are on the bikes are too fragile for everyone (thus why everyone NEEDS new ones), and we're going to take a different direction with the materials, and do something that will stand up to mountain biking a bit better. The goal is to have decals that are capable of being externally applied, clear coated or left uncoated. I don't think we will be able to go to the efforts and expense to do a decal that is capable of handling powdered clear coats. The demand just isn't high enough.

For now, as mentioned in the other thread, we are working up decals for Fat Chance, Wicked, Wicked Lite and Yo Eddy

I have never seen anyone do a repro of the Ti decals, and it seems that YoKris on this forum is the only one that is able to supply. These are the originals though, and the price is accordingly expensive.

However, I know that gil_m have wicked repro decals, and can supply the decals without the wicked text, and then you are almost there....

Thanks guys, Gil has done decals for me before but if possible I wanted to get proofs to perhaps fabricate some metallic style decals.

I'll drop YoKris a PM, in the meantime if anyone can help...

Seriously.. What going on with decals? Theres nobody on this site that knows how to reproduce decals? I mean there are site that have them but paying $50-60 bucks for somthing that was scanned and printed is outrages! Maybe I should just buy a set and print them out myself. I got a freshly painted 92 Yo Eddy bare

I've used velocals for a few different bikes and the Yo Eddy set I purchased from them was of very excellent quality. I'm waiting right now for them to make me a set for my wicked so I can have it repaired and sent off to paint. They have the true temper decals as well.

if you have a Wicked, there you go. If you have the "regular" Fat Chance, you could remove the "wicked" part or I know they would be happy to make you a set if you email Christine there. very nice folks.

here's a promo code for 15% off at checkout: velo913

Default Decal colors on yellow Fat Chance Yo Eddy (1993 model)

Does anybody know the decal colors of the stickers on a Fat Chance Yo Eddy (1993) in yellow?

Regarding the following I am pretty sure already:

- The text was black
- The little bones next to the "yo eddy" text were filled with white


What I don't know exactly is:

- The color they used for the "FAT" text
- The color they used for the "yo eddy" text


Many thanks for your help!

P.S.: Sorry - posted this in the wrong thread before...

I inquired about a customized set of decals to Velocals three times, the first time, it took 4 months and I got an email apologizing for the delay, but to submit more detailed instructions of what I wanted... so I did, and never heard back. ...thought maybe they weren't specific enough, so bought a wacom cintiq, drew them up, and resent everything for the third time providing full .eps and .ai files, offering to buy multiple sets to make it worth their while.

...never heard back on any of it.

whole bikes done and sitting here all year with no decals. awesome.

Is "Fat Chance" available in yellow? That is the color of the stickers on my bike which I'm going to have repainted. Thanks
