Dandy colours
« on: 04 December, 2019, 23:45:56 »
New to forum. Purchased a dandy here in Australia about a year ago. Year is 1957. I am ready to paint and would like help with colour codes etc to get paint mixed up. Would like the white and red/maroon paint scheme as per adverts.
Any help would be appreciated.

Polly Palmer is the club's paint expert and I got my Dandy paints from him some years ago. May be an issue posting overseas these days but he may be able to give you a colour code for them.
Just be careful because there are similar but different colours in the BSA 'maroon' range. This how my Dandy ended up with the wheels a different colour to the rest of the bike  :-[
