clayborn resto

Okay im looking for a set of repop or original decals for my clayborn frame. I talked to the factory but they dont make them anymore. Im looking to restore it back to original when i bought it new in 1997. Here is picture of my bike now. It was black from the factory.

I believe the stickers were chrome and yellow.
