K2 Tank decals
« on: April 27, 2019, 09:52:50 AM »
I've just had my tank painted Candy Ruby Red and it's time for the decals, however some have a single black stripe and some a double one. Which are correct for a UK 1972 K2.
Thanks for any advice.

This is the one - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-CB750-SOHC-K2-Fuel-Tank-Decal-Stripe-Kit-Black-Gold-Silver-Screen-Print/401554171755?hash=item5d7e7e676b:g:QzcAAOSwu4BVsQyu
Mine is a 75 UK K2 and this is what I used - just done a spare Candy Ruby Red paint set and also used this one.

Thanks guys for your replies and welcome to the forum.

The decals on the two websites both have a single black pinstripe whilst the set offered by Paul G in your classified ads has double black pinstripes. My dilemma is which are correct for a UK K2 ?
Checking through some old books I've found two with double pinstripes but they were both K0's, did this change at some point  ?

The double black pinstripes are for the earlier K0/K1 models - if Trigger says they are as the link, I would go with that. Piki is used and trusted by the forum members for all his decal products by the way.

Paul G is building a UK K1 and to cut a very long story short, he had no use for the K1 decals, so sold them off. UK K2 are single stripe as already mentioned.
