Decal set

I'm having problems trying to source a set of tank decals for my bike here in the UK.

Reaching out to see if anyone can help, I want a set the same as the attached thumbnail

Cheers in advance, Gaz

Not much luck on eBay either, only found one side of tank... I've a feeling it would be easier to get hen's teeth lol

I'll have a rethink

Is it that important to get the original decals? Many sign companies can make what you want.

No not at all, but I'd need to get dimensions of all the decals to get them made up. I might just go decal-less lol

when I repainted mine, I had new decals made.. I told the company how much room I had, and they made a couple sizes for me, and I chose the one that I liked the best. Now, mine are not exact (not even close) duplicates of what was on it originally.

also, didnt GCExtreme start making decals?? he is an owner of a vn, not sure what year, but at least he is familiar with what your looking to do.

*edit*, it seems from memory that there is at least 1 other member making decals as well, but I dont remember username(s).. sorry if I missed listing you guys

Been hunting for a complete set for a bit.

As a bonus I did source a NOS 85 tank, so that kind of made it less of a pressing search.

Kawasaki VN750 Vulcan 1986,1987 fuel tank Part No.51002-5186H8 new | eBay

I ain't paying that though

I've contacted a graphics guy to see what he can come up with and Kanuck sorted me out with vector images for the side panels
