Hi Guys, my name is Bruno from Australia. This is my first post. I just purchased a 1984 VF1000F painted Candy Orange or it’s a Orange with Orange Pearl (even the seat has been recovered in orange/black vinyl). The Colour Code label has NH-1-Z which i believe is Black. Does anyone on here have this colour code? is it Black and what other colour? a photo would be great because i want to repaint it. Cheers
I would look for available sticker sets and paint to fit that.
Hi Faxe. Thanks for your info. I was hoping someone on here would have the same bike (to match my colour code) so i can see what it looks like. Cheers
Hi Bruno, there are some photos of my black and silver fe in standard uk and European colours,
the sticker sets at available from cb decals in Canada, bit pricy though
Thanks vf_pete. Looks like it has more silver than black ha ha. Cheers Bruno
The FE was produced in 3 colour schemes,white and blue,black and silver and your which I imagine was originally black and red.Sun fade turns the candy red orange eventually.
The red is Candy Alamona Red code: R-124C-U
Hi Bif. All the plastics were recently painted Candy Orange or Orange Pearl by previous owner (well it belonged to his friend), i forgot to ask what the previous colour was. The colour code label has NH-1-Z which is Gloss Black, but i don’t know if it was Black/Silver or Black/Red. vf_pete thinks it is the Black/Silver but i really want to make sure before i commit to $$ restoring the paintwork and decals. Cheers
Decals available for all colour schemes at CBR decals as Pete says,really up to you which way to go
Hi, I am a new member, also from AUS my color code is the same, and I am painting mine as attached
Hi Tony, Where are you located? I am just about to organize mine to be painted in the same colour scheme. If you are around Sydney area maybe we could do a 2 for one deal
I’m in Queensland, have you an idea of what you were going to be charged?
Hi fellow aus members, i have just about finished my total rebuild on my 84 fe , except for the paintwork and decals and in your same colour scheme as you guys , how random! But i am in vic , as the boys have said cbdecals in canada have all the decals you need, cheers tony
Have my decals on order from cbdecals. I plan on getting my first paint estimate today. Will let you know how I go
Just ordered my decals from cbdecals, thought the price was cad , but was usd, ouch over 300 aud with paypal exchange, sure hope they look good
Yes I thought the same thing, ouch!
I just received mine, and am very happy, yes they are expensive…but you don’t have too many options
any news regarding the painting quote?
Very good, i ordered mine a couple of weeks ago and they are somewhere in transit , i had a qoute from a guy who was $1000 plus extra to get a sign guy in to apply sticker kit, hes in wangaratta vic
And that was all the plastics and the tank for $1000
Thats what he said so i have to drop the stickers off when i get them and i will confirm the price
