Motorcycle Repair/Paint color and where to get it


1986 Honda rebel color NH-145M-V code NH145

Paul... found some touch-up on eBay.

I believe that either Color-Rite or Duplicolor might be the suppliers for Honda's paint. I checked and Color Rite stops at 1986... I would contact them to see if they have records and can supply it anyway.

For support, you can use the form below, e-mail us at or call between 9 AM - 8 PM Eastern Time M-F. East Coast Sales and Support: 800-358-1882

You might have to buy the touch-up paint and take it to a automotive paint store where they can color match it in-house. Silver will need a clear coat over the top to maintain the same gloss.

Need help with vintage Hondas from the 1960s? I am an expert with 250-305cc bikes in particular and most all of the other pre-91 models, in general. I do NOT claim to have a great deal of experience on Gold Wings, Cruisers, ATC/ATVs and dirt bikes.


I have owned/ridden/maintained Honda motorcycles for 35 years. I have written five books on Honda repairs and collecting. I was a service manager for two Honda shops back in the 1980s.
