Decal replica Q

Does or has anyone ever replicated the RVT decal and Honda decals on our bikes ??
Is there a digital copy available I can print off a couple to replace my old ones??

I once took a whole fairing to a Sign-O-Rama, where they perfectly duplicated the "Honda" along the lower fairing for use on the other side. And that decal is a slightly glittery silver that they matched pretty darn close. I would imagine that any solid color would be quite easy for them to duplicate. As for the RVT, I'm guessing those should be made in individual letters that you would have to "work with" as you install them. And maybe you'd want to have more that one or two sets made to allow for a mistake during the install to your fairing, just sayin'.

Of course, you'll need at least one good fairing to do this.

Mind you, I don't know HOW they duplicated the nice, new sticky vinyl decal. Did they scan it, or did some artisan with calipers measure it a dozen ways and also have a feel for the Honda font? Dunno. But......since I had no idea what they would come up with, I did specify that I had the right of inspection and refusal in lieu of payment. In my case, I could immediately see that their "Honda" was spot-on, and I was happy to pay whatever it was. $50? Wasn't much more or less than that, but YMMV.

I see a very sharp X-Acto in your future!

I did this for my Hayabusa back in the day. There was a guy on the forum who did it. Google spews out plenty of options when you search....It was about a 100 bucks shipped to Canada for all the decals. I repainted the bike.

So how would one go about getting a hold of said Ralf?

I'm looking to have some Repsol graphics done for my helmet.

Also CapeCodderRC, what roughly did it cost to have your Arai done?

Thanks
