In need of custom stickers and horn

Hello all,

I am rebuilding an old walmart bike I was given for free to be a security bicycles at the facility I run security at. I have the approval to do it. I am basically just using the frame and replacing everything else with better parts.

I am need of some things and thought I'd get suggestions from you all!

1. I need a loud horn since its required due to fork truck traffic. Those squeek horns are not loud enough, I need something that someone will hear while running a fork truck.

2. Where is the best place where I can get reflective stickers made for my bicycle? I need to make a few "SECURITY" stickers that are reflective.

I will be sure to post photos of my WOP as I build it if you all would like me too

Try these guys for the stickers.

www.reflectiveconcepts.com

I've had them make me custom stickers before. They have reflective colors. Just tell them what you want or find a picture close to what you want and 90% of the time they can make it for you at a fair price.

Unless you use an electric horn, I am not familiar with a regular bike horn that will be that loud. Depending on how many times you will need to blast it, you could go with a handheld air horn placed in a water bottle holder mounted on the handlebar. Maybe someone else here knows of one that you could use.

For a horn, try the AirZound air horn - 110dB and recharges with a bike pump. Use it again and again.

you can thefirestore.com and thecopshop.com for stickers.

galls.com is a good bet, but I think they're pricing is a bit on the high end.

I agree on the AirZound, awesome piece of kit.

Any local sign shop will have a reflective vinyl in a variety of colors. They can cut what you need in any size or font. Try a small shop and plead poverty. You should get them pretty cheap.
