hey guys im looking into giving my bike a new look by adding some pinstripe decals and i was wondering if any of you have used decals (or better yet pinstripe decals ) on your bike. if so how did it turn out? was it difficult to put on? how did they weather?

anyways thanks for the advice/ info!

I'm doing vinyl decals on the missus's Honda and the gent who made them told me to spray clear lacquer over top to keep them from pealing

I hate decals, I have never been able to put one on without at least one air bubble somewhere in there. Tint shops can usually put em on, or it might be worth having someone do. Definitely want to clear coat over them though.

I have a local gent who makes them for about 2 bucks a shot with the good 3M stuff.

Is vinyl the way to go? I have a buddy in NJ with a vinyl detailing shop who also said he'd help me out for free; just wasn't sure if vinyl is what I wanted.

Do the pinstripe rolls that sell at autoparts stores make it around corners OK?

I used vinyl decals made by Old Bike Barn when I repainted my CB450 tank, to get that original look. But then, I put the clear coat over them, so they can't be damaged by normal wear.
