Hi Steve, Phil, et al …
For as long as I have been interested in these bikes (quite a long time !!) the question of paint colours is a perenial question asked on various forums. So as you are the first to ask on this new club forum it inspires me to record for the convenience of all our present and future members the paint codes for the three models. The BLUE on both RC and RD are the colours most have trouble identifying but a few club members have had colour matching done in the past.
NOTE>>> I don’t have the RD Blue codes… can someone please complete this so we have all the info together. Also, any corrections or other suggestions
that members may have tried and tested which may be of use to anyone doing a repaint job in the future.
I will create a special info page for paintcodes and respray information shortly once we have all this together.
