Many thanks,

Joe used to do a lot of tank restoration. He may know. How about Dave Boydstun of AMS ? They may know.

I have a can of the original color red for the twin pipe CZs. I was mixed for me about 3 years ago. Not sure how quick you are needing the info, but in a couple of weeks I could take it for a color analysis and send you the mixture.

I assume that paint stores can take a sample, scan it and get the mixture of colors.

There seemed to be two reds for the twin pipe. A semi-dark red and the orangish red. I have twin pipe tanks with both colors.

I think I also have the correct cream color for the fenders. I have several twin pipes in different stages of restoration.

Thank you for the replies!

Txjcfsf - Thank you for the offer but please don’t go to that much trouble, i’m sure I will be able to find the code..

If you or anyone knows volume of oil for the forks would also be very helpful - either capacity or measurement from stantion top..?
Also what would you use to seal the fiberglass tank?

Many thanks again

Regards

Russ

If your Twinpipe CZ's forks are original you want to use 170cc of 20 wt fork oil in them.
