Hello From Denver Colorado

Postby A Pile of Tile » February 19th, 2013, 3:03 pm

Hello!

I just recently aquired my (wife's) first Barracuda. 1995 or 1996 A2E is what the previous owner thought. It was powdercoated orange. I paid $125 for it, XT Cranks, derailleur's V-Brakes and levers, LX Hubs, Sram X-Ray shifters, New Salsa Skewers, New Specialized bar & stem, Rock Shox Psylo, all new cables & just tuned. Also came with XTR clipless pedals & a Cateye Strada Wirless computer. Seems to me $125 was a steal :mrgreen:

Would love to get some original decals for it & to try and give it a little more luster. Anybody around here know how to get any?

Hello and welcome to the neighborhood!

I'd say you got a serious steal! Congrats on the fine score... hell, $250.00 would have been a good price for all you hauled in!

The thing to do after you have the decals ready, rough the surface of the powdercoat with 3M surface prep cloth, a good wipe down, apply the decals, and then some auto body clear sprayed on by a reputable body shop.

I did the exact process on my track bike and it looks amazing!

Good luck!

I have looked all over this bike & CANNOT find any Serial Numbers anywhere? My Gary Fisher is just about the same way...could it be the powdercoat? Not sure. Anyway, here's a picture....I sold the XTR SPD's, put the computer on another bike & I just found the decal stencils that you all have so generously posted the images of & sent them to my decal guy...he said in a week he'll have em ready, Nothin' fancy, just white and black, should look good with the orange.

Barracuda decals over that solid colour will definitely look interesting! :)
