    Many of you know I'm moving to South Dakota. I will be extraordinarily busy for the next 6 months and will probably not be here on the site much, if at all. I've asked Markus and he has said yes to a large favor to me. I am going to send whatever items I have left to him. If anybody needs these in the future, we ask you make a donation to the site and pay Markus for the shipping costs to get them to you. It's the best way that I could think of to keep the items available and also help keep the site up. Right now, Markus is the only one that knows what I'll be doing and I'd prefer to keep it that way until I update you all with the news. Hopefully one of the Moderators can make this a sticky!?

    As of today, I have taken possession of the remainder of the decals, emblems and stickers that Prfixer had made for the site. After talking with Furchin, this is what we've come up with. As you all know, the site has no 'Donate' button anymore but the wheels are in motion to get another account set up for the site so we can put the button back in operation. Temporarily, I'm gonna keep a ledger on what this stuff brings and then when we get the account set up, I'll make one payment to it and after that, you all can donate to the site as Prfixer intended as you order. I'll get some pics up soon of what all is available and start filling requests for these quality pieces. This is a very generous thing for Dave to do since I'm sure there was a sizable lay out for these and it's all top notch stuff so let's support his efforts and support the site at the same time! Let me know what you need!

    I've taken some pics of what all Prfixer has left of these stickers and emblems that he has forwarded on to me to disperse on the site. For those of you that don't already know from getting some in the past, these are professionally made and high quality stuff. On the right side of the page you'll see the caliper sticker and the ignition sticker, both made of thin aluminum with an adhesive backing on them. Very nice little detail for your ride! On the bottom of the page are the tank decals of both red (bottom) and black (above that) bikes. Very nice replicas for sure!! That brings us to the 'Eliminator' side cover decals. There are 6", 7" and 8" ones to be had. The battery box side cover on the right side takes the 6" decal and the left side cover takes the 7" one. The top one is an 8" decal that you can stick anywhere........use your imagination! I had one in the back window of my truck the I'd see everytime I looked in the rear view mirror.
    There are also a pile of what he labeled 'rejects'........stickers he culled for one reason or another. Looks like he was experimenting with different textures of materials before he settled on the more shiny ones you'd use for a restoration. These 'seconds' can be put around on anything and are yours for the asking but won't be sent in place of the 'restoration' ones' meant for under your clear-coat. You'll have to specify 'second' if you want those, otherwise you'll get the ones' meant for your fresh paint.
    He's instructed that all proceeds from these are to go to the site and that's what will happen. Until the site gets another paypal account to where we can put the donate button back up, I'll keep a log of what's owed the site and pay it out of my paypal account when that time comes.

    As with any other sticker of this type, you have to go very slow when laying these down and peel back across the grain at a sharp angle.....and go slow!!! I had no trouble with any of these I layed down.......but I went slow!

    First of all, thanks to Markus for taking this on for me! I'm just going to have to be out of the loop for an extended period of time and will not have time to do this.

    Markus- The decals are all the same, I just weeded out the ones that I thought the borders weren't good enough or maybe there was a "slice" through some of the chrome when they removed the excess from the decals. I have some NOS ones and the borders aren't even around those and I'll bet if you look at your NOS tanks, they won't be even either. Some of that was just me being anal!

    Everybody take care and I hope to fill you guys in on what's happening in the next couple of weeks or so!! Dave:headbang:

    I have purchased Two sets of black ZL900 tank decals and the ignition decal. They were all perfect. well worth every dime spent.
    I only wish someone would print ZL600 tank decals (they have a white border rather than the silver border the ZL900 has, other than that they are the same decal)

    I'm very happy with the decals prfixer produced. I hope his time away is fruitful. Much good luck.

    As of today, there are no more tank decals for the BLACK paint job. We may do some more in the future but as of now......no more left! Still have plenty of ignition and caliper stickers and the side cover ones as well. Send me a PM if you need anything.
