@Hondo
Thank you for this, I have a few more questions.

Whats the width of the blue stripe by the tank mounting bolt?
55mm wide just at the top of the bolt clearance dent in the tank
What’s the width of the blue stripe at the front of the tank?

How far is the wing tip on the Honda decal from the black line
27mm down from the Black line at a plumb line across the tank 30mm back from the outer edge of the filler hole

and how far is the H from the from the black line?
The "Honda" runs parallel with the bottom edge of the tank.
I’ll Post links to the fender decals and the factory paint company tomorrow.

@Hondo thank you,

I’m really struggling to visualise whether I have all the measurements I need especially as have to tell someone else so they can paint it..

Is this all I need or can you add anything?

I bought the factory colour silver and the blue from a company called www.bikecolours.com Mal the guy that owns it was super helpful and a pleasure to deal with , and the decals were from Andy @ www.classicreproductiondecalsandparts.co.uk agains a good guy.

At the same time I got the correct colour silver for my 72 DT2 MX, the red for my 84 ATC 70 and the silver for my 73 TL125, all of the stickers came from Andy including the fender decals for my XL350.

Highly recommended..

I can add anything you may need to know :-D
Pretty difficult to work from pics and info remotely...may be almost worth buying a used tank to copy from then re-sell later if not needed?
Does Bike Colours ship worldwide ?
