    1978 R100RS Metallic Gold color

    Anyone have a clue what the Metallic Gold color code is for the 1978 R100RS.
    Been trying to repaint a piece of damaged faring but my painter says the published code is not correct. So if anyone has a clue I'd sure appreciate some help.

    Most likely it's Gold Metallic:

    Nice bike, Bill

    Paint code is #546 Gold Mettalic.

    Painter, Eddie Guerra at Mark of Excellence on Blanco Rd. San Antonio, Texas has done some work on my bike. His number is 210 834-9457... I think it matched up very well....give him a call; maybe he can give you some info. He is one of the best around these parts.

    My business is located in Oceano, California. Oceano airport (an old WWII era ELS air strip (now a community strip)) is used as the north "pylon" for the circuit out of SM on air show weekend. A constant, two-day long symphony of round engine and Merlin music.
