1988 Dyno Compe

Under Restoration Dyno Compe

I wanted to build an '80s freestyle bike just so I could get a set of Skyways. So, the first things were the new black Skyway mags with sealed bearings and the blue Odyssey Aitken dirt tires. I really liked the Dyno because of its unique pretzel bars, drainpipe seatpost, and the unique front forks. I decided to use a few better parts than original, but vintage for the era. Some parts like the Sinz chainring and the PC pedal will be replaced, just used them so I could ride it. I don't really care for the white trim than seemed to be required on an '80s freestyler, so I went with black and aluminum trim. What I really need is an original set of '88 Dyno Compe decals for the blue model. If anyone could point me into the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a list of current parts:

1988 Dyno Compe frame and fork

Dyno Pretzel handlebars

Dyno Drainpipe seat post

Dyno chrome inverted gooseneck

Oakley B1 type grips

Flite Bright blue grip donuts
