    I've had little luck in finding proper decals for my ST70. Especially the '70'-side decals have been hard to dig up. And those I eventually found, turned out to be just a little bit too big to fit the recess properly. Etc etc...

    And then I stumbled upon https://www.isaydingdong.co.uk/ourshop/cat_440519-Honda-cc-pg_3.html

    A little bit of everything, including side decals in two colours and two sizes, spark plug cap decals etc. And reasonable prices too, it seems.

    Perhaps y'all would find it useful?

    One way to find out.. place an listing on Ebay. Say you have 5 for sale. IF you sell a few you will know! just say made to order in the listing and can take up to 3-4 weeks to protect your butt ... or just refund the money right away and say you ran out.. LOL :p

    It's possible, as outlined in the book "Make Your Own Custom Decals For Fun & Profit...Mostly Fun".

    Seems that most graphics programs rasterize everything. That's okay for photos but for decal graphics, not so much...you end up with jagged edges. The big stumbling block is coming up with printer-ready, vector, graphics. There aren't many programs for doing that and the few that can are stupid-expensive. The alternative is finding a shop willing to take on the job...for $100/hour. That adds-up quickly, ask me how I know. Went through yet another round of this over the winter...almost a full week chained to the desk to come up with something clean enough to take to the shop, followed by almost two months waiting and multiple trips to the shop, to come up with four different decals. With luck, I'll be able to recoup half the cost...over the next five years :40:

    yes, as I look into t more I can see how hard it is, just trying to come up with one using paint and or word if not working at all, no colors match at all.

    Best thing to do would be take a pictuer, use photo shop to clean up and enhance for a printer and give it a go... or spend big bucks!!

    A+++++ Red :77:

    That took time and effort and great creative thinking. You could get $20 a pop for sure
