New owner - decals

Hi everyone


I am the happy new owner of a SC28 from 1993.


The bike was white original with colourfull decals, but the seller painted it all black, and all the decals are gone


I want to bring it back to the below model:

So I have searched the web over, and over again for the original decals. Some shops have some of them, but I cant seem to find them all.
I did found an Australien shop, where it looks like they are in stock, but somehow I doubt it. Any way, if they do have them all it will cost me around 1500 AUD or around 1000 Euros, a ridiculous amount of money for some stickers. But then again I am a perfectionist so I want the bike to be original.


But as I said I dont think its possible to get them all, so that´s why I am looking at alternatives like aftermarkets decals.


The following shops have alternatives:
https://moto-sticker.com/Honda-CBR-9...OR-STICKER-SET (Looks like bad quality, the colors are not grading)
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254337862578
https://www.decalmoto.com/honda/1961-cbr-900-rr-1993-fireblade-.html


Any of you guys have experience with some of these decals, and tell me wich is best.


If you know of a better alternative, please let me know.


Have a nice day.

Congrats on picking up such a great bike, and even more congrats on wanting to return it to original as possible.

I cannot help with decals, but I remember from an earlier post that esteemed member @IanDoohan has experience/contacts for decals. This post will alert him to assist.

Unfortunately I have ZERO contacts or experience BUYING or SOURCING decals. I think @Gunk possibly has, and/or @Andrew_S . Gunk now owns Andrew's 900, but has sourced decals for either an F3 or a Tiger or both. Maybe they will have some avenues for you to take.

You could just buy all aftermarket panels in those colors and get the tank painted to match.

Good luck sir

Re: New owner - decals

As Ian posted, I own an identical bike. The decals are no longer available but do pop up from time to time on eBay as new old stock, however using 25 year old vinyl stickers is a bit hit and miss and it’s impossible to get a full set.

The most respected company here in the UK for replica decals for 1990’s Sportsbikes is Image works, (avoid the decal sets advertised on eBay, they are rubbish quality)

The Image Works Vinyl Graphics They can supply a complete set, the correct white by the way if you are repainting it is Ross White.

Ah, sorry guys. I got confused when you (Ian) offered help to Dual Headlamps about paint codes.

All is not lost though, because @Okyo , I have also used The Image Works Vinyl Graphics
and found their products excellent for my NS400R restoration. Postage costs from UK would be well justified.

Re: New owner - decals

Wauw thanks guys - that might solve it, and its going to be Ross White
What about the purple, should I bye the stickers and the let the painter match the purple from the stickers?
Because the lower fairing needs a bit of purple paint as well. At first I thought it was only the front fender and the tank, but it looks like the lower fairings need a bit paint on the top.

I’m pretty sure that the purple is in fact Dionysus Blue
