Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

CB500 Bike Decals

Post by jerryfudd on Tue 15 Sep 2015, 4:35 pm

Hi,

I'm just chatting to the people who provide our club graphics to get a set of decals made up for the bike.

Firstly they can do the Honda wing for the tank no problem but what I do need is an accurate height..... from say the bottom of the text to the top tip of the wing and maybe the widest part of the text (as per the picture)




Secondly can someone take a good photo directly in front (so a flat image like the one above) of the CB500 side panel logo and post it up so they can make the graphic up aswell as providing the dimensions say to either end of the horizontal bar aswell as the height (just for reference its the lower graphic in the picture below I'm after).



Oh, and also a direct on pic and dimensions of the HONDA logo above the rear brake light..... Smile


thank you!

Dan

Ill try & remember when I take the tank off for it's 32k service.

I still think getting the decals reverse cut so you can do them in gold leaf would finish your bike off perfectly. Lets face it, anything less for the most expensive CB500 in the country would be tacky Laughing

It's a pity that my brain is fading away , as there was a member on this site about two years ago who was offering the vinyl graphics for the CB500, but I can't remember his name.
I got some nice gold tank logos from him and they were only 50p each or something like that.

Will you need to clear lacquer over them to make them look 'right'.

nah, they will also be cut vinyl as opposed printed sticker but it'll be fine Smile

also means I can easily change or re-align as many times as I see fit.

Oh you're going the vinyl route. I'll get more accurate measurements of the side & back stickers for you.

As far as lacquer goes, I'm pretty sure it's just the tank decals that have a clear coat over them but will check. It won't make that much difference either way, they'll just look betterfor longer & be harder wearing with one.

I think the measurements for the side and back you've already taken will do great, I was exchanging mails with them this morning and they've forwarded the link onto their designer who is going to get it plotted and priced up.

I asked about a printed sticker as opposed to cut vinyl but they aren't tooled up to do that.

Cut vinyl is good as it's pretty cheap to replace but agreed some lacquer or going the sticker route is harder wearing but also more expensive. Think this will do for now and I'll see how I get on.

(...just need those tank logo dimensions  tongue )

Looks good & it'll be extremely stealthy against your paintwork. Laughing

I'm doing it myself here as don't have the indoor space or facilities at home. It's just to check it out for now but if it's as good in the flesh as on the website I'll be becoming a member & using it regularly.

Here you go, it was a bit awkward to measure and photograph at the same time so the measurements might be a mm or two out:-






Hope this helps.
