I have a fair number of such stickers -- manufacturer ones like Huret, StrongLight, Gipiemme, Dia-Compe, SunTour Superbe, Dura-Ace, Cinelli; tubing decals (Reynolds 501/531/753, Columbus, Vitus, Tange, Ishiwata, promotional ons like "Breaking Away with Campagnolo" and "Exclusive Official Supplier of Cycling Components to the 1984 Olympics - Los Angeles," etc. Some I'd be willing to trade for, others not. I've been scanning some of these in a cleaning them up as well. I just finished some Columbus ones so I can make my own transfers if I repaint a frame. Here's a Columbus bumper sticker from the early 80s:

And here's some of the others:

I didn't do any of the foil-backed ones, like Ishiwata or the later Tange, nor the old-style Reynolds and StrongLight ones with the paper cover.
