Handlebar control restoration question. was created by johnste1960

Hi, I am restoring  controls similar to below.  These contain decals (look to be printed on aluminum foil)  for thighs like STOP, RUN, HI, LO, HORN......

Does anyone know a source where to purchase these or possibly how to make them?   Can they be carefully removed and put back on with new adhesive?



Thanks in advance

Have a look on fleabay.

These are in Germany - some might be suitable, but some might be for Euro models only.

Thanks everyone, I did check Diablo and found some items, However there was nothing for my specific bike . Some of the decals used on other bikes may work, but some are different. This is a start.

I will check the other sources that were given. My plan is to hopefully find replacement stickers then powder coat it with my Eastwood do it your self powder coating setup. Then, apply new decals. If I cant find new ones, I will more than likely mask off the decals and go with paint.

THanks again.
