Paint code

Greetings peoples.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible using the VIN codes and other markings on a 1983 K100 to work out the correct colour? I'm trying to return an old K back to uber original spec.

Cheers and kindest regards to all.

Re: Paint code

Hey Paul, are there any paint codes on the bikes VIN plate? Know they are on the LT, not sure about earlier models but suspect they might be.
There's a few sites where enthusiasts have done much of the work, like this http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/pcodes.htm

sounds like fun
cheers mate

E.L., Paul's down under. It might be a bit of a stretch for him to telephone Ohio.

Re: Paint code

Under the seat means either on the rear fender, visible when seat is raised or it could mean on the bottom side of the seat. A three-digit number easily used with a resource such as realoem.com
