1967 CL77 305 Scrambler
Im getting ready to powder coat the frame and want to change it to blue. Anyone have the link or information as to what the paint code is? Im finding Candy blue or Candy Sapphire Blue. I prefer the darker blue if its accurate.
It depends on whether you're talking about the latest scramblers or the earlier blue framed scramblers. The later ones that had the blue and burnt orange tanks and side covers with chrome fenders had black frames. The bikes that had blue frames had silver fenders, tanks and side covers. I believe there are several threads that cover that blue paint. I remember Ed Moore, aka LM, has mentioned a blue before. I forget the name but I believe it's something like farmers blue or something like that. If you're referring to the metallic blue tanked bikes, I don't know what that color is but the frame would be black.
By that description Im thinking early models. I want to keep the silver tank, fenders and side covers. I want to paint the frame, headlight bucket, ears, swing arm, took box, chain guard, top of the rear shocks and maybe the tail light. I do not want to paint the lower front shocks.
I really like the darker blue. The Farmers of America Blue seems to almost have a purple color to it. Grrrrrrrr I thought this was going to be easier.
Thanks for your input guys. Very helpful, as always.
If you want the bike to look original use it.
If not you can go pick what you like at a paint store. .................lm
