    Paint code. Handlebars/ Rear rack/ engine vent trim

    My bikes paintwork is in lovely condition, all but the graphite coloured rest gab rail/ rack. It is really badly scored from the previous owner, and I thought it let the rest of the bike down, so I decided to have it powder coated.
    That was before I took it off and realised it was in fact, plastic.

    So, only way I can improve the look now is to paint it.
    Does anyone have any idea of the Paint code for it, or if it can be bought premixed off the shelf?  I am presuming it's the same grey as the handlebars.
    Thanks

    The only paint code I can recall anyone finding is the bodywork colors (Colorite).  I have yet to see that anyone has found a code for the infills, the wheels, or the bars and grab rails.

    If you have a "Jawel Paint" supplier near you,
    their "M2-2780" is the closest match I've ever found,
    maybe just one shade out, and if you are spraying the
    complete rail you'll struggle to notice the difference !

    Otherwise, most Automotive Paint suppliers will either be able to scan and identify the colour,
    then mix a can up for you, or will have a set of colour cards to find the closest match by eye.

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks.  I have a paint shop close to me and they have all that paint match gubbins so I will use them if I have to.  Was just wondering if there was a code available to save colour matching,  I don't want the rail to end up a different colour to the handlebars, although I'm sure paint matching will get it close

    Going out to colortec today for painting.  Hopefully a good job.  They will scan and match.

    Well, that was a waste of time.  Colortec Tolstoys me it would cost 150 plus vat to paint!  To hell with that, a brand new rail is only 125!

    He did mention their scanner said the paint was a 95% match to a Hyundai paint, but I didn't catch the number.

    I think Ill just order a new one.
