I doubt you'll find a bike oriented decal shop willing to do the job since what they'll be doing is actually illegal with out express permission from Raleigh, particularly for decals that new. With that said I'd talk to the graphic artists in your area or even Kinkos. Also really good hobby/model shops have connectons for this kind of thing. Check out the archives on the Framebuilders listserve at http://www.bikelist.org since this subject has been beat to death many time there. enjoy, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives
