howdy, some unusual items here, i'll try to describe as best i can, but email for a pic which which make things very clear. Shipping extra.

1. generic foil bike decal restoration kit. This is a complete foil-based decal kit for a bicycle, with generic themes which I will describe. In the kit, you get 2 panels for the downtube and seattube, one panel for the headtube, 2 triangular panels for the fork blades, plus one other panel which I haven't figured out yet. Price is $25 per complete sheet. The four styles are: a. EAGLE: red, white, blue and natural foil. Really nice. the word "EAGLE" has it's letters filled in to look like american flags. An actual eagle image is also featured. There has never been a better time to put patriotic decals on your bike.

b: CLOVER (ACE): this is the nicest. Combination of natural foil, red and black. Features a huge clover (like Colnago !) and the word "ACE". olympic bands as well.

c: TOUR: this is real nice, actually, maybe this one is the nicest ? features the word "TOUR" together with a whole bunch of european flags (like old Masis !) !

d: SPRINT: combination of natural foil, white, blue, yellow, red. The word "SPRINT", the letter "S" (looks like a Simplex S), olympic bands.

2. Chrome panels. I have VERY few of these. This is a simple wrap-around foil panel about 7 inches long. It is all natural foil, and has three colored bands at the top and bottom, which alternate with the foil. The bands are all the same color. There are three colors available: yellow, blue, white. These are REALLY nice, and so generic, that you would never consider them out of place. Each individual panel is $25. Ask for a jpg, you won't regret it.

3. Olympic rings foils, each package contains a pair. These olympic ring foils were used in the 1970s on bikes such as the cinelli supercorsa. I'm sure I've seen them on other bikes, but I can't recall the brand. $9 per package, or 5 packages for $30

4. Chequer adhesive decal. This is the checkering that you are familiar with on Peugeots and Crescents and probably others. This is in the form of a roll of tape, an inch wide by a meter long. It is black/white checkering. I also have available a mirrored-checkering tape, which basically has the effect of each little square of the checker being mirrored in such a way that when the light hits it, you get a prism effect. Either variety is 5 rolls for $5. I know you don't need 5 meters of checkered tape, but if you saw how much I have of it, then you would certainly take mercy and understand.

Thanks !
