Here at Cycledrag.com we are always striving to connect our readers with the best parts, people and services.  After an ice racing adventure with dragbike racing champion and sponsor “7.0” Joe Koenig we had an idea to give his awesome YZ 250 big bore, 285 c.c., a look fresh enough to match his striking Trim-Tex design on his sports car teams and Larry “Spiderman” McBride’s operation.

DeCal Works showing off Joe Koenig’s signature “7.0” number – a nickname given to him after setting the AMA Prostar Pro Stock record at 7.04 in 2002.

“The kit is one of our semi-custom “complete” kits – (From $89.95 rads only to $269.90 Complete kit) semi custom complete kit includes decals for radiator shrouds, swing-arm, lower forks, front and rear fenders plus number plate backgrounds. The design is a T-9. We offer – 17 plus “base designs” that you can choose the accent colors and specify logos or text where you want them,” said  Zont.  “We researched, and digitized, Joe’s Trim-Tex Drywall Products logo and added the CycleDrag.com logo to the T-9 base design – His unique number being 7.0 And used accent colors to compliment Joe’s company logo colors”

Koenig was able to debut the new graphics on frigid five degree day out on the lake.

“I’m very pleased with how everything came out,” Koenig said. ” It looks fantastic. DeCal Works did an outstanding job.”

DeCal Works gives the buyer complete control of the sponsor logos on the graphics. The DeCal Works design studio can create the perfect look for any team.
