CB500/550 / Tank badges
« on: Today at 06:55:10 PM »
I'm about to refurb a pair of 500 tank badges..
Has any one got any pointers..
I've found humbrol satin white 130 is as near as damn it to the original colour ..
And I reckon I can brush flood the badges.

My question is are the original 323 badges brass colour all the way or is it a coating so if I flat back the raised surfaces on a face plate will it stay golden ? Or buff back through to monkey metal?

The black should be relatively straight forward to brush in?

Thanks in advance

The tank I am taking about was almost definitely fitted and was original to a k0 bike

Paint no doubt about it...
I'm guessing the black was painted the colour painted...
Big white stripe to cover the joint...then a small black painted stripe just off centre of the white stripe to give the effect of a larger and smaller white pin stipes...

All DA'd off so could see the application as I worked down the layers ...
Wish I thought about pics

Which brings me to another question...
I know a few have refurbished their tank badges..

What white or shade of white did you use.
It looks abit creamy on my badges but that could well be age

Gonna dig up this old topic..

I have been messing with my spare tanks ..
1st one leaked and had dents under the crappy paint job
2nd one was on the face of it a mess....and was hammerited gold
It cleaned up a treat and was gold originally underneath ..with no dents and very clean inside
What I'm getting at to clean this old tank back to bare metal I sanded the paint back..
When I got to the pin stripes
The stripes seemed to be applied in a large solid White line first with the black inner stripe over the top to give the effect of 2 white stripes..

Should have taken pics but that was as I found it on a very original paint job under the mess...

Make sure you check for leaks on the tank before final paint..
They have a habit of leaking at the seams as a hobby.
