Side Cover Tiger trasnfer question (69)

I think this is the right trasnfer for 69 tiger, am I correct?

The larger one came from Walridge (CA), the one with the more rounded text and shorter "650" came from Transfer Services (UK).

The more I look at them the more incorrect one of them looks. Probably just splittign hairs.....

Which one do you folks think looks right?

Google can't find a "Transfer Services (UK)" selling sidepanel transfers for old Triumph motorcycles; do you mean Classic Transfers?

Regards,

Stuart

I first thought that the left one looked correct but looking at this pic maybe the right one is better, leftie looks a bit squashed? If they're waterslide buy both and see which one looks best on the bike.

Dammit, low res scan of the old brochure, but I'm thinking the right is best :-)

Text is more "square"...

Left looks like it has better spacing, but the right appears to have a more authentic character shape.
