1982 Reproduction side decals
Decals were a significant problem. Yamaha no longer sells
them (Discontinued) so if I want them, they will have to be some form
Fellow Seca owner Steve Smith once again stepped up to the plate and
sent color info, and his "Turbo" decal as a template. I combined
that information with a complete pencil rubbing from another bike to insure
a fairly accurate size, shape and color.
Getting the information converted to a computer file, for the vinyl cutting
equipment was very time consuming, and added up to 3/4 of my total cost for
creating the set.
Unlike the original, which was
a single layer silkscreen decal, I opted for the less expensive two-layer
vinyl method. (Note: My local sign shop now has the Turbo
and stripes image on file, and I can get you copies in nearly any color
combination you wish.) The vinyl used is top of the line 3M.
