There have been many inquiries regarding the topic of decals. Specifically, Bertin owners of older, classic bikes want to know where and how to get period-correct decals to restore their framesets. In most cases, the bicycles they own are anywhere from 15 to 50 years old and usually in poor cosmetic condition. Paint is chipped, decals are missing, tubing decals are rubbed partially away but the bikes themselves remain as viable and desireable as when they were made. The need to mechanically and cosmetically renew the bike becomes obvious but it is the “how” of restoration which is the problem.
