Fransis Barnet Dove Grey

Post  John the bike on Sat Aug 21, 2010 8:16 am

I'm looking for a sample of the FB Dove Grey Paint so I can complete my latest project. RS Motorbike Paint Ltd in Hertfordshire say they can match the colour and so have it on their records for future reference. If anyone has a scraping of the colour I would be most grateful.

Regards

John Very Happy

Dover White????

Post  FB vincent on Sun Aug 22, 2010 9:56 pm

Are you getting confused with FB's 'Dover White', which was used towards the end of FB production in conjunction with Arden Green or Black (and just a few scary examples where red was the primary colour)? For James colours, have you looked at the James website 'http://www.simplywizard.co.uk/Lost%20In/myfiles/faq.htm#'. Although the FB and James products were subject to badge engineering in the last years, FB Falcons and Cruisers remained unique to the end and retained their FB colour schemes. Sandy Ross

Thanks for reply, I think your right it is Dover White I want, that's probably why RS Bike Paint did not recognise it. I will get back to them to see if they have it, looks like I've given them wrong info.
Many thanks

John

John,

RS Bike Paints can supply FB Dover White, although I have to admit it seems slightly more grey than I remember it on those shiny new FB's standing on the oily floorboards of my nearest showroom all those years ago................ Sandy Ross
