To the best of my knowledge, no one has reproduced ItalVega decals, nor have any old stocks turned up. I recently gave a frame to Ed Litton that has decals that are good enough to create artwork from. Making them is not a high priority, but it will happen eventually. Now if say, 10 people were willing to chip in and cover the cost of decal making, it would happen a whole lot faster.

Do the calipers say "Universal Mod. 61" or just "Universal"? What size seat
post fits it?
