I stumbled across a deal on eBay that I just couldn't pass up........... 100 vintage onZa mountain bike stickers from the '80's. I ended up with the winning bid and now I have quite the stash to figure out what to do with!
onZa was the first very high-end mountain bike component company. They invented and marketed the first bar ends, sold $400.00 titanium cranksets, custom tires........... if you were a mountain bike racer in the '80's you probably had one of these stickers on your bike. The company was sold in the 1990's to a mom and pop trials bike company in England where it prospers to this day. The new incarnation of onZa only sells hand made trials bikes (stunt bmx style bikes with no seats). They bought the original onZa company for the brand recognition only and discontinued the cutting edge parts line. Too bad.
These stickers are very high quality with a clear coat layer and appear to have been made for bike frames................ now I just have to figure out what to do with 100 stickers!
