  • Every once in a while I see people wanting to replicate lettering/graphics for restoration. I'm happy to help, just ping me with photos and I'll return a vector file that can be used to print new decals. In no rush. It's a fun thing to do with a beer in hand as long as you don't go all client on me.

  • Ooh that's amazing. I could do with some for an old tandem. Watch this space ...

  • Not the best images in afraid

  • Oh, I didn't see this, sorry. Will turn notifications on. But that looks fun, could you measure the height + width of both words (in mm) please? I'll give it a crack

  • A base to start from, could you take a better shot? Dimensions would help loads too.

    The Micro you posted from retrobike seems to have much thicker thin lines, and the radius of the corners seem bigger too. It depends whether you want to redo the word Tandem as is on the bike, or replicate the Micro effect more. Up to you.

  • Yeah, or that :)

  • thanks a lot - I totally missed the update on this

    the bike is up at my mum's, so I won't see it again until Christmas day, but I'll do some measurements then. There are no decals left on the bike at all, but I'll measure the tubes.

    I'm happy to go with whatever you can be bothered to do, the tandem ^ looks great.

    thanks a lot for your efforts so far!
