I know I hardly have any posts but I am on this site reading through posts all the time and I have def. picked up that you know your stuff....that is for sure! Do you think you could post, send or link some pics of bikes you've painted using that color? Like I said I wasn't trying to insult or start a debt about it because I am just learning as I go....hell the bike is 20 some years older than me. I mean I've never even seen another Superhawk in person besides the one I am working on....so it's all new to me.

No problem with your thoughts.
I have several bikes out there which are painted with that color which I've used since 1985 but no easy access to them on the computer.
There ia a feller on the forum selling a 1961 CB72 with a link to pics of the bike and ya can see it is the correct color. ........................lm

61 cb72. knowing who built this one, color is surely correct.

67 cb77. note wrong color chain guard, too long correctly routed throttle cable, misrouted clutch cable, other anomolies.

I got a paint code from a good and knowledgeable friend. Yes - it looks orange but I have a NOS rear shock cover in 'red' and it is a good match.

This is my red CB77 frame alongside a custom metallic blue frame for another CB77....
