XS250 Paint

Recommended Posts

Hi all I am nearing the end of my build and I need to get the paintwork re-sprayed. Took the parts to a local painter who upon checking said the paint was a "candy red" but possibly mixed with silver. This was a process done at the factory and would be difficult to reproduce. Does anyone have any ideas please. The bike is a 1981 xs250 uk spec.

Difficult to reproduce!?? Custom car painters have been doing this for years and can produce any colour with any effect!!..... but perhaps today they are a dying breed!

Nonetheless surely you just need the paint code? and these paint shops can make it up?

heres a website for yamaha paint codes and your model


hope it helps...

Hi Neo thanks for the reply and the link. I will ask the chap who is painting it to investigate.
