I have a custom CBR F2 and I have damaged one of the custom decals on one of the panels when I was removing it. Normally I would be very upset as I know that the decals for the bike where a one off and I would not be able to purchase another decal like this one. HOWEVER, Im a designer and having had a picture of the decal I was able to redraw the decal into a vector image (something a signwriter/graphics specialist needs to cut the decal from the vinyl) and then have this produced for me to my exact measurements and colours. I was really happy with the results and I will post some pictures of the old vs replacement decal on her soon. I have redrawn a couple so far and will be building up a bit of a library of Honda/Fireblade/CBR logos so if you need any of these please feel free to ask and I will send you the file and you can take it to a local signwriter/graphics specialist and have it reproduced. I also found a great Honda typeface which is 95% close to the font used by Honda.

Hi Dave, sure I will email them across tonight, I just have the ones shown but I am working on copying the repsol decals at the moment and I have the fireblade logo somewhere so I will send that across to you. Any problems feel free to let me know. Many thanks Lambo

Hey,

I got your email but wasn't able to open the files - I am not sure what program uses those extensions - perhaps its because your on a MAC? Also what is the windows version of the font? (I tried replying but the email got denied for some reason).

Thanks!

Hi Dave, The emails been playing up recently, I will look into it.
The files are .ai and .eps files, the need to be in vector format for the vinyl cutter to plot the course of the cutter and cut the shapes from the vinyl. Although you can open them if you have a copy of adobe illustrator CS on your PC. I will send over the pc font tonight. Let me know how you get on.
Cheers. James.

Hi Lambo!

I have a black 2006 1000RR that I scratched up taking a fall a few weeks ago. Now it's been repainted and the paint job looks great, but I need new decals for the mid left side fairing ("CBR"+"Fireblade") and for the tail fairing ("1000RR"x2 plus "Honda"). Have you by any chance vectorized these ones doing the Repsol ones? It seems to be hard to come by good aftermarket decals; the factory ones are gloss silver with a thin dark gray lining. If you happen to have these stored on your computer, I'd be forever grateful if you'd mail them to [email protected]. All the best/Rikard

and chance you have some RR (the one where the first R is a little higher than the second) and FireBlade designs/logos drawn up?
Thanks

Not sure what it looks like, but if you have a photo or a link to one where I can see it, I might be able to reproduce it in a vector format for vinyl printing. Here's another PDF I did with the word Honda. Maybe you can use that one also.

Lambo, you're the man! (I hope that's right, I didn't check your profile). This is my first time here. Don't laugh, I'm modifying a '95 CBR 600 F3 for my friend Birgit Soyka. She is one bad ass German born chick, calling San Francisco home now. She has Yamaha Cup racing experience at The German GP at Hockenheim, Nurburgring and The United States GP and she is a multiple class champion at Willow Springs Raceway in CA. check out her YouTube video here:
she also has an incredible book at Amazon.com To Drink The Wild Air.
Anyway I need graphics for her recently acquired '95 F3. If you would be so generous as to share your vector files, we would be very grateful. I have access to the vinyl cutting equipment. I need the Honda wing emblems for both sides of the tank and I'm having some difficulty locating the extra large wing logos used across the entire lower fairings of the later model F3s. Thanks [email protected]
