Hurricane engine transfer on '65 G12CS replica

Postby Baggers » Thu Mar 08, 2018 9:02 am

I am currently nearly finished my '62 G12CS replica. The guy who is doing the tank is having a lot of problems with the 'Hurricane engine' transfer. He has tried three from the Spares scheme (part no 009208) and all of them will not adhere properly to the tank prior to lacquering. He has had no problems with any other waterslide transfers and he is a professional bike spray painter with over 30 years experience in the trade.
My questions are relatively simple:-

1) Should a G!2CS have such a transfer on it? It's not a replica of a home or export model if that makes a difference.
2) Classic Transfers list a 'Hurricane' transfer but it appears not to say 'engine' in silver underneath. Could this be the one I need?

The bike itself is a replica (it was a G12CSR) but I'd like it to be as close as possible to the real thing.

Thanks in advance

No idea why they won't stick, I've had no trouble with the ones I've had from the club, and yes a 65 should have one and with engine under it.

Now that's interesting, I was convinced that from 60 on the CS and CSR had the transfer BUT I can only find it listed in the 60 parts list for CS models despite both variants using the same motor.

Despite that I still fit them as it looks good on the tank!
