The Standard Frame Sets come in the three original Lotus colors, Black, Blue, and Gold. We have a color chart here, if you'd like to see the original color combinations.
The 7 Decal Standard Frame Set (as shown in the photo at the top of the page) is for bikes that have a riveted metal head tube badge installed and includes;
2 LOTUS font down tube decals
2 script Model Name decals for the top tube
2 small LOTUS emblem flower decals for the fork blades
1 large LOTUS emblem flower decal for the seat tube
Plus a bonus custom mini LOTUS font decal, for practice, use on pumps, stems, accessories or as you choose.
The 8 Decal Standard Frame Set is for bikes that do not have a head tube badge installed and is the same exact set as the 7 Decal Standard Frame Set but includes an additional large LOTUS emblem flower decal for the head tube.
Our decals are available in two formulations. The Standard Decal is for top-mounting on existing paint and is designed to replace your original decals.
The Extra-Thin decal is designed for those who are repainting their bicycles and will be adding a clear coat over the decals. You may use the Extra-Thin decals on your bike without clear coating them, but they will need to be waxed to protect them. The Extra-Thin decals are still better than the original water-slide decals that Lotus used, but they are not quite as durable (without being clear coated or waxed) as the Standard Decal we are offering.
The Standard Decals are already super-thin and are barely perceptible when you run your finger over them. They are also soft to the touch and have no sharp edge like you would find on a cut vinyl or homemade decal. The Extra-Thin decals use different formulations of paint and adhesive to make them even thinner for use under a clearcoat.
