Welcome:)

You could open a Flickr or Photobucket account then copy the URL where it says 'share' and paste it into the Build thread you create.

Just noticed you're in Norfolk Geffers. Was your bike won on ebay in Cromer by any chance?

I'm sure they'll be someone along to help with the paint code. as for the build thread, start a new or use this one.

If you look at my flat tracker build in the dominator section of the site , the tank I painted on mine is as close to Honda red as I could find.
I bought it in a spray tin from German ebay, its a two pack paint with the hardener in the bottom of the can.
I painted mine then baked it in my oven for 20 minutes at 100c and its really good IMHO:thumbup:
Let me know if you would like me to post you a link to it ,its about £13 plus shipping and one can was enough to do three coats on my tank and side panels.
You dont have to use primer, just paint onto bare metal. :clown::clown::clown:
