Love the Razorbacks paint job, Lou! And, if I end up with a nice rider with no pedigree, I'd certainly think about painting it red and white and smackin' Bucky Badger up on the head tube. BUT, recognize that this is a strictly controlled image, and you're wading in treacherous waters, legally speaking. The Collegiate Licensing Company is quite aggressive in pursuing violators who use school images without first paying for the privilege, and will most certainly litigate against you, were they ever to find out. Anybody else out there remember the safe sex campaign in Madison in the late '80s/early '90s, where condoms were badged (pun intended) with the infamous badger and the slogan, "Get lucky with Bucky?" Of course, it's highly unlikely that anyone connected to the CLC would ever see your hot ride, but still, Caveat Emptor.

My apologies if this is redundant and commonsense information.
