1977 Honda CB750 restoration- paint!

With most of the mechanical stuff done, We turn to the cosmetic side and the paint scheme. The basic scheme has been set for months since the frame was painted orange a long time ago. But the contrast colors were up in the air… The dark silver I mixed was always first choice but I also considered white and green like the Aston Martin Vulcan. In the end we stuck with the silver.

A lot of the prep was done last year- the tank bead blasted and sealed with POR15, the side panels repaired with SEM plastic epoxy and everything was epoxy primed. Now the colors! The orange is the same as the frame but the different lighting washes it out- it is very bright!
