Default Early Yo Fork Decals ?

Hi,

Has anyone got (or could take) a good quality image of the fork decal from near the dropout ?

Sizes would be really appreciated to ...

Many thanks,

WD

Help needed here guys...we need to get some fresh fork decals made. Once they are vectorised we can all get them again

Did a straw pole of random builds. Seems less than 15% of bikes have original OEM forks, most are aftermarket repros, so maybe these decals are quite hard to comeby...

I have one that I could photo and measure - just going to be out of town this week. If you haven't gotten a response by the end of the week, I'll get you what you need.

best,

I'll get some pictures and measurements Tuesday or wednesday (currently on vacation). I have one on my 1998 Ti Fat and an early one - 405 a to c with campy dropouts.

Hi,

Thanks for that gents

A good search has revealed these pictures :







If yours are identical, then I don’t think we need another photo – just the dimensions would be great

Would it be possible to give us two sets of dimensions ? i.e. the dimensions of the rectangular printed outline and the total overall dimensions for the clear decal backing ?

I guess the width might be tricky to measure as its wrapped around the fork ? A piece of paper wrapped around it, marked, lay flat and then measured should give us an accurate ‘flat’ dimension for the printers.

Many thanks for helping with this

WD

- printed outline = 22h x 21w

- clear decal = 25h x 24w

Thank you very much

Was it one decal per leg or one per fork (if so was it always on the crank side) ?

Cheers,

WD

The '98 BOI has it on the right leg, on the older fork it's on the left.

The yellow fork above was mine and a '93, and it was on the right side.

And for what it is worth, that was the first thing I pulled off my '91 Yo when I bought it new. Like it was the plastic film on a remote control for your tv
