Title: What is the Factory Paint Code for the frame for a CB-1?
Post by: CB1inNoVA on September 26, 2008, 11:29:14 PM
Hello,
I am in the process of refinishing a portion of my frame, and would rather the color match the rest of the silver/aluminum components' factory color (e.g., engine cases, etc.). Does anyone know the factory paint code for the frame?  I know that the main color is Pearl Presto Blue (B131).
Thanks.

Are the paintcodes on a sticker somewhere? See if you can see "B131" on one and if there are any other codes. If you can give me the code, I can tell you the name.

Hope this helps, Drew.

Hello Drew,

No such luck, the only paint code on the sticker under the seat edge is the primary color (Smurf Blue - B131) ??? ???

Thank you Xestenz,

I found a site (www.motorcyclepaintsupply.com) where I can order a paint chip sample prior to spending big bucks for the actual paint ($43/ half pint) although they list it as NH167M.  Apparently this color code (NH167M-U) has been used as a primary color as recently as 2003.

I'll let you know how it works out.

Did you try NH167M? Did it match?
