Matching Blue-Green 1975 GL1000

Post by cfairweather »

I have found a very close match to the 1975 blue-green GL1000. I bought one of these bikes new and always loved the color. I liked that it was bright blue in the sunlight and then looked green at sunrise or sunset. I know you can get this color from a motorcycle paint dealer online but it costs a fortune for just a pint kit. The mix I am suggesting looks just like the original to me in the sun and shade. You can get everything you need from and it is reasonably priced. Here is what to order:

1. EKU-Q-G15 This is a quart kit of Teal EyeKandy 2K Urethane Candy Paint
2. EKU-MOTOKIT-S202-B04-UC210-UR011 (Kit of Stellar Silver [S202], Asiatic Blue, UC-210 HS Glamour clear)
These kits include the activator, reducer, sticks, filters and mixing cups. These do not include primer and sealer.

I paid $278.92 for everything and this included shipping. It is enough paint for two or three bikes if you are careful.

Here are the steps:
1. Prime and seal.
2. Apply Stellar silver base coat.
3. Mix two parts of the EyeKandy teal with one part of the EyeKandy blue. Then mix this new color with the activator and reducer as directed (411 mix). Apply this very evenly.
4. Apply clear.
