Lloyds lists full sets of Pike decals, both the sausage DT and block letter versions. I don't know which were the first. There's a red frame with the sausage style graphics on the CR web page.

Stan also did both the "Stan Pike" on the DT or a "Pike" on the seat tube. Here's a pic of my racing Pike with the ST version (presumably original paint):

The stemless clover lug cut outs seem to be a bit of a Pike trademark:

Bob Jackson's also has the Pike graphics. Here's some pics of my Pike touring that Jackson's resprayed for me. Block style DT 1st:

I'm still deeply impressed with both of my Pikes. Excellent riders, and immaculate craftsmanship on both.

I have one set of original Stan Pike transfers that were given to me by Stan's son, Steve. Stan used a transfer for the head tube, not a badge. It used the letters SP in an oval. I would be willing to make reproductions (or offer them for reproduction), which is something I've been working on anyway, if someone on the list would need them for that frame. Great candidate for a restoration. If I didn't already have one.........

Mine, original with proper transfers, can be seen here:
