Anyone here have or know where to get the small tank sticker for a '69 TIGER 650 in shiny gold? I have found decals and stickers in dull brown,... Yuck!
They don't look anything like the nice side cover sticker. Please check your stash !!

KC, I don't know what to tell you.
You are correct that the originals were bright gold, and showed it when the sun shown on them.

But the cheap crap being sold as replacements don't have this appearance. This applies to the oil tank
decals as well. This is just another of my arguments with suppliers of junk "repro" stuff for our bikes.

I have made templates for this decal if you can find someone out there who can make it. A 'small batch" maker who does them for model cars, airplanes and model trains may be able to help.

Not sure if you have tried these guys before.


This one??
http://www.classictransfers.co.uk/transfers/triumph-6546-104x25mm-3-00-each/

or this?
http://www.classictransfers.co.uk/transfers/triumph-8132lc-65x43mm-4-00-each/

I suspect the second one?

I checked what I had downstairs from them. I used some transfers from them that are true gold, but there we a couple in the pile of unused ones from them that did look 'brown'. I didn't really check for a difference between waterslides and cut vinyl, but can check what I have if that helps.

My daughter says she can make you one in gold vinyl


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

Thanks for the P/N. And I'll keep looking with vendors Monday, but that offer will stay on my list, Thanks Shel !
I have emailed Classic Transfers in UK, but they mostly sell water slide.
Now, looking at their site, I have become confused with the Tiger 650 offered in Block letters or in Script letters. They are both listed for the '69.
Possibly US and Home markets were different?

The tanks were different, home market was the slabbier looking 4 gal, and everyone still called them Trophy's anyway.
