Good afternoon, wondering if anyone has any info on the number decals on the side panel of the BSA on the homepage?
The numbers are in a retro font with a "stars and stripes" infill...

Wondering if anyone can attest to these (stickers? decals? transfers?) were custom or easily available from a retailer for purchase?

Thanks!

The #57 is my bike. The #10 with stars and stripes sticker came from the famous racer Neil Keen. He had #10 when he raced.
Keen died in 2014. His wife Kim Keen is CEO of Donelson Cycle in St. Louis MO and she is still operating the business.
Maybe she can tell you who produced it.
The #57 plate is available from any racing plate producer in the states. I can get you the info of mine when I get home.

Hey Morgan,
Thank you for the background! It is a beautiful bike and I wouldn't have made the connection with Neil Keen! I just spent a little bit reading about him, and I see that may be his signature font for the number 10.
Glad I asked about it!!
Have a nice weekend,
Cheers!
