I forgot about Reproduction Decals KP. I think Steve put me on to them for for something else when I first acquired 576. If I had a frame label I would certainly send it on to them as they are in London Ontario, straight up the 401 from me. Just bought my Caddy CTS there a coupe of weeks ago! Smiley I could have stopped in to see them. Unfortunately my label was painted over, chewed up and beaten to death!! Sad

Reproduction Decals did some reproduction work for me, side cover decals for a Yamaha, they were reproduced exactly like original.

Mark
If they are willing to copy for you I would like one also. I did not have one to compare to but agree that one we got won't do it!

I brought my label to a local shop to see about reproducing it.  They kept insisting that they could find a font "real close" to the original.  After asking multiple times about scanning it or photographing it they finally agreed to look into it and get back to me.  They just don't get it.  It's frustrating.  KP, is your source in Canada Reproduction Decals?  I've bought some from them and they were on a thinner plastic material.  I don't have one of theirs that's not on a bike so it's a little harder to compare but is their graphics OK?  Maybe I'll just buy another one.

Yes Mark, that's them and their work is spot on generally as they continually deal with anal individuals like us. I'll send them an email if you like about the sheet material and ask again about accuracy. They also return the original decal being copied so it won't be lost to the universe.
I'll post back

I called them and asked if they could do it out of aluminum and was told no.  But I was talking to the person who fills orders.  I did buy one of their labels just so I could check out the graphics.  It was only $6 plus shipping so I figure I might as well.

I bought a Z1 VIN decal off them which they said was spot on. I received it and it was about 8.5 to 9 /10 so emailed them and said it was not accurate. Seems they were using a later VIN decal and just changed the manufacture date. I sent them my original and it came back 99% I say 99% cos nothing is as original as original  Cheesy
