      I have a couple of 75S's and I have found a good match for the Red of these machines.
      It has worked fine for me.
      FORD RADIANT RED obtainable from Halfords or any Can Spray outlets.

      Webmaster,
      Price old chap...price. Also my nearest BMW Motorcycle Dealer is 25 miles away a long way to go for a touch up paint.
      By the way, congrats on the forum.

      Webmaster,
      We Brits take a lot of pleasure in bargain hunting and Ajays is right there are very few BMW bike dealers in the poorer areas of the South East, the nearest official BMW dealers to me is probably London, 77 miles away! However, there is a unofficial specialist forty miles away, Germany is probably better catered for in dealers and specialists!

      Hallo, Michael,

      I tried to get a spray can for my K1100LT last year and was told at BMW Hamburg, that there are no rpt. no spray paints for motor cycles in stock any more.

      I tried a lookalike pain found at A.T.U., but in daylight it did not look alike. Still searching.

      Regards
      Rolf

      Hi to all,

      of course, there's no need to get a tin spray with a Beemer sign.
      In Germany, there is (for example) <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.motorrad-Lacke.de" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">www.motorrad-Lacke.de</a><!-- w --> which has got nearly any BMW colour on stock.
      On the other hand, how much is the loss in value if you use a "98% look-a-like colour"? I guess that a few pounds would be a reasonable price if the result is 100% instead of 98 :D

      Michael,
      Maybe just maybe I want to be a rebel and respray my bike a non-standard colour, standard BMW bike colours were a bit limited on the "K" machines, too conservative for my tastes, but colour is a very personal thing isn't it?
      I couldn't live with purple, its was not enough of a pure colour for me, OK so the Romans favoured it, but for me it was a no no.

      Besides of late, once I have a bike it usually, unless its a "dog", stays with me!

      Cheers

      Michael,
      "from 7,00 EUR
      incl. 19% Tax excl.Shipping costs
      "
      I will just go down to our local shop and buy a match thank you. We also have a garage that will mix a match.
      I notice there are many of our German brothers have their bikes in non BMW paints. Some quite repulsive to my eye.
      To get to my BMW agent is a round trip of 80 Kilometres.
      I wonder what it is like to be wealthy...!
      :D Ajays with a smile.

      Good morning gentlemen,

      of course you are right: if you prefer a painting in banana yellow or frog green, there's no need for a genuine colour. I thought that you'd like to repair some scratches -and that might look a bit strange if you take a different colour.

      Michael, smiling all the time

      Michael,
      For touch-up , the preference will always be original colours first, but for total respray and colour schemes a difference approach can apply.
      Problem for me is i do not like the new paint materials and before have only had experience with cellulose paints which were hardy and colour-fast.

      Now with the use of flat coats and laquers some for general parts and some for petrol resistance and how they can adverselty react to one another, its got messy,expensive and disappointing in resistant to fade and wear.


      Cheers
