Sure. What do you need? Looking at the final photo, from the front edge to A is 7 1/8". From A to B is 7/8". From B to C is 11/16". From C to D is 13/16". From A to F (on the tape) is 12 7/8". From C to the actual point of E is 11". Point to point on the heavy line is 4 13/16". From the point of the heavy line to the edge is 2 1/4". From the point of the thin line to the edge is 1 3/4". The fat line is 9/16" at its widest and the thin line is 5/32" at its widest. Let me know if you need anything else.

BC, I love your bike it puts mine to shame, but this is what a 44 year old paint job with decals looks like.
Sorry for the crappy pics but they hide a lot,

I always try to take them from a "certain distance". Up close, it's nowhere near as nice as some of the bikes I see here. Not too bad for 44 years, original paint and nearly 80,000 kms, though! I've always tried to take care of it. I'm getting ready to put on a new to me OEM exhaust in the next few weeks. That will improve the up close looks considerably.

I honestly don't think any two pieces left the factory with the decals in the same place. Once I wet sanded my tailpiece I could just barely make out where the original decals ended. I also looked back at photos of the bike from last year before I stripped it, and the skinny decal vegan almost centered above the rear signal light stems. 

Mine definitely sit a little farther back than yours Scott.

You're probably right. They likely varied as at that time, I'm sure they were laid by hand. I think as long as both sides match, it should look good. Yours look very similarly placed as bluej58's.
