We know how much your successful
bicycle restoration depends on accurate Tubing decals and that
many fine classic bicycles were built with Reynolds Tubing.
Reynolds 531, for example, was the first choice of many frame
builders and bicycle manufacturers for many years and was the
material of many Tour de France winning bikes.
We would like to supply the
reproduction Reynolds decals that you need, but Reynolds
Technology Limited, owners of the trademark, will not let us.
They threatened us with legal action if we did not comply.

It does their company no harm if we
make and sell reproductions of obsolete transfers and it is of
great benefit to the Classic Cycle community if reproductions are
readily available. They are harming you with no benefit to

We do not dispute their intellectual
property rights under law, we just think they should do the right
thing and allow others to use their obsolete images in recognition
of all the support that cyclists have given them over the years.
They also do not seem to grasp the fact that it would help keep
their name in the forefront of people's minds and generate
You probably came to this website

Our aim is to encourage and facilitate this hobby and we think it
will benefit us all if Reynolds Technology Limited change their
position on the reproduction of obsolete Reynolds Decals
