Welcome to the Forum. If its a Candy colour, I would recommend Menno Dek in Germany, also a forum member. Many, many of us on the forum use him for our paint work. I don't know who does stick on faces as we only use the proper perspex faces from cb750 faces.com ( who supplies all the models faces). If you want your faces fitted properly contact forum member Kent 400 (Peter) re refurb and overhauls the clocks.

Yes I used Menno too for Paint for my CB500K0 but I have also used someone in N.Yorkshire.
Again Lecram for faces and Peter Horton (kent400 on here) is spot on for gauge repairs.

I am in Willerby by the way .. so keep posting on here to up the East Yorkshire contingent  ;)

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I can’t comment on Menno for painting as I haven’t had the pleasure of doing business with him yet but I have used Peter (Kent400) for my 400F clocks refurb and they are spot on.

I’m in Hull btw. We will have to meet up sometime.
