Re: 1982 Patterson Pro

I have a general question to anyone that might be reading.  I see the '84 (I think) style reproduction stickers on a lot (probably the vast majority) of the Patterson frames on this site - the orange letters like those on mine, but over the white background with the blue/orange/yellow border.

Being that I'm just a longtime owner/rider and not a restorer/collector, I'm just wondering what the general thought on replacing the original decals is.  When I think about restoring cars, restoring everything to showroom/concours condition by any means available seems to be the common practice, while for something like vintage guitars, even if only 5% of the original finish is left on the guitar, any collector would leave it in its as-is survivor condition as opposed to refinishing.  Personally, even though the decals on mine are scuffed from 27 years of use, I kind of prefer them to reproductions (thus the fact that they're still there).

Anyone else have any thoughts on the matter?

Thanks,
CGS

Re: 1982 Patterson Pro

Awesome bike!  I loved Hackenbush.  I drove around and found it again about 12 or more years ago and was stoked to find old DGs and such hanging from the wall. 

As far as the decals... I wouldn't touch 'em.  Your bike has historical context and much of that will be forever lost if you mess with the decals.

Re: 1982 Patterson Pro

Just spotted this beauty whilst looking for your Skyway! One of my favourite Patterson models and even better with the og decals! Putting the later model (‘84) decals on it would look wrong to me.


Check out my 1983 VDC-built Trident, 1983 Kuwi Laserlite, 2010 GT Ultrabox 2, 2011 Crupi race rig and prototype Quamen, plus the all things Crupi & old school scene in Japan threads. Always interested in buying used, mid-school race plates and pads - UGP, Knucklebone, Lizard Skins and the like!

Thanks, and yes, I decided to keep it as-is (as-was?); to me it just wouldn't look right any other way.

Cheers!
