1974 XL350 fender decals / tank decals colours

Post by Chris » Mon Oct 15, 2018 10:12 pm

Hi,
I’m in England and looking for some assistance.

I’m looking for the fender decals shown on the attached pictures?

Is the blue on the tank a decal or is it painted, if so can anyone tell me the paint code of the blue ?

Anyone got any good pictures of the tank or even the measurements of the blue section so I can mask and spray correctly?

Many thanks

Can't say I've ever seen guard stripes for the 350 before, which is odd because they're out there for the 250 and they'd be the same..just different colour :hmmm:
I'll be looking for some myself very shortly...guess it wouldn't be too hard to just paint them on
Pretty sure the tanks were painted? I do have a few originals in varying states of repair here if you need to check anything.

@Glenn thank you, if you have any pictures of the stripes on the tank and also if you are able to measure the width of the tank stripe that would be most helpful?
The tank has been repaired and primed so I have nothing to go on.

Thank you

Family issues have kept me busy over the last 6 weeks, so not really had the time to acknowledge the help that’s so really appreciated.

I’v downloaded the pictures and I’ll get my reading glasses on make sure I understand everything.

In my absence I have tracked down th fender decals, bought the factory silver and blue paint and it’s booked to be painted before Xmas.

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

Whats the width of the blue stripe by the tank mounting bolt?
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 and how far is the H from the from the black line?

I’ll Post links to the fender decals and the factory paint company tomorrow.
