M10 Restoration

Recommended Posts

Hi 

Thanks for letting me in.

I have a Bultaco M10 in great condition which has been in dry storage for approximately 40 years in Guernsey and now in the UK.

The engine is in the frame but everything else is bubble wrapped in a couple boxes ready to go.

I'm going to start the restoration very soon and I wondered if someone knows the paint code for the frame, I originally had the frame powdercoated in grey but now realise how stupid i was in doing so, i intend getting it stripped and sprayed properly.

Thanks

Mark

Ok will do, thanks for the heads up, I'm very keen on getting this restoration absolutely as perfect as possible though so was really hoping to get the original paint code, thanks, Mongo.

There isn't an actual paint code that Bultaco used. I've seen RAL 9006 recommended. Or the old Ford late 1960s colour of Silver Fox is a good match
