I've liked Profile components since I started riding trails in the mid- to late-1990's (I had chrome 180mm Profile cranks and a polished 45T Profile Whippit sprocket on my bike).  However, I quit riding in about 2000 and, after buying a Haro Monocoque as a "commuter bike" in 2005 (http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/haro/43873), started building a BMX bike/part collection in late-2010.  One of the first bikes that I coveted was John De Bruin's 2004-ish Profile Racer XL (he first posted pictures of the bike in BMX Museum on 11/21/2010).  Well, after John had the bike for nearly four years, he put it up for sale on 5/13/2014 ($1,100 USD shipped).  The bike sold (I didn't even realize that it was for sale), but after the buyer backed out (http://bmxmuseum.com/forsale/126569), the bike was relisted on 10/9/2014 (http://bmxmuseum.com/forsale/138683).  I immediately PM'd John and tried to get if for a little less than his asking price.  He was willing to let it go for $900.00 USD shipped, so I became the proud owner on 10/10/2014 smile .

Seeing that the frame was missing the top tube and seat stay decals, I started looking for Profile Racer XL decals.  Miraculously, a seller on eBay put a complete of decals up for sale on 10/21/2014 for $30.00 USD + s/h (another $4.00).  I messaged that seller too and managed to get the frame sticker kit for $26.00 USD shipped on 10/22/2014.  We were both happy with the deal, and now my bike will have all of the correct decals cool .

If you want high-resolution scans of any of these decals, give me a PM and I'll e-mail you the files.
