    Default Ducati M900 Frame Paint Colour

    Hi All,

    I'm really really struggling to get a match for my frame paint for my 93 Monster 900. It's not quite the same colour as the later M900's from 95 on (I think?) so it is proving rather difficult.

    I am also having trouble finding anyone local to match it, who are able to put a bit of time into mixing some paint instead of just finding the nearest colour on a swatch that often isn't close enough.

    Does anyone happen to have a paint code for these early frames or could anyone recommend anyone in North Yorkshire that could accurately colour match some paint?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Sam,

    Thank you. I've had a look at their site and it looks like they have the same gold listed for Monsters before and after 1995, which is too gold if that makes sense?
    I'll send through an email and maybe they will be able to tell me if they are different.

    In the meantime if anyone else has any leads too that would be great!

    I'm aware of the difference, the '94 is a slightly darker shade, more bronze than gold but I feel that matching to a swatch is as near as your going to get. You should be able find something that is indistinguishable, it will depend on the paint supplier. I've done so in the past but not with that particular shade.

    Old enough to know better, young enough not to care

    Thanks for all the replies and info.

    I have a couple of swatches coming from RS which they think could be right, I will keep you all updated.

    Cheers
