Jota side panel & paint codes
« on: June 27, 2016, 23:36 »
Could someone please recommend an online supplier that I can buy a set of side panels for a Jota, and the associated badges?

Also anyone happen to know the paint code/colour for the Laverda Green and Orange?

This is the green, I'm sure you know the Orange  :D

Paint codes here http://www.laverdamania.net/paint.htm

For the green I did use the Ral 6029 Minzgrun Lechler on the original parts but when I put on Boba's carbon copies I used "Yorkshire Electrical Board Green" which is a Ford colour and a green that I prefer to the RAL colour.

Top photo is the Ral 6029 Minzgrun Lechler, bottom photo YELB Green on a carbon tank. Ironically under daylight rather than neons the YELB Green is darker than the Mint Green.

I can offer you a pair of glass fibre sidepanels with aluminium mounting lugs out of Bobas production. I'll send you some pix!

If you are in Europe, or indeed the UK, badges are also available from Peirro Laverda at Laverda Corse  info@laverdacorse.it . At least they used to be, and were cheaper than Badge Replicas.

Such a nice looking bike Davo .... Very tidy.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

Ye the YELB Green is nicer by far.

Thanks for the note and the email Gert, will be in touch.

I have to say I really didn't expect there to be such a lively community around Laverda, when I bought mine originally they seemed forgotten but then the Internet didn't really exist I guess.

Resurrecting an old thread here because the photos of Davo's bike are relevant.

I think the time has come to give my poor old Jota a facelift. It was painted orange by the PO many years ago and is now looking a bit beat-up, as you can see from the side panels. They've been cracked and repaired over the years. The tank has a couple of scratches in the paint too, and the duck tail has a patch worn though from a luggage strap rubbing on it.

As you can see from the insides of the side panels, the bike was originally painted green and I'd like to go back to the original colour. I haven't decided whether to reinstate the pinstripes yet. I quite like the look of them but I don't think they were original on a 1976 bike. Not that originality is a big deal to me.

The bike has a silver-grey frame so will end up looking a lot like Davo's, with a few minor differences.

The problem is that the green inside the side panels is so patchy and faded that I dunno which patch (if any) is representative of the original colour. So I reckon I'll just be guided by the RAL colour range.

I'm considering RAL 6029, 6018 and 6037.   6029 looks a bit too dark to me and 6018 a bit too light. I quite like Davo's YELB green but my paint bloke probably won't know what that is. The nearest colour on the RAL chart is 6037.

Has anyone used 6018 or 6037, and if so, how does it look? Any other suggestions would be welcome.

There were some comments about 2 greens, one was used on Twins and the other on triples. The first Laverdas I ever saw were that green, both in the same car park, there is an RGS about in that colour that I like a lot. What is weird is the whole bike pics of Daves bike look different to the last pic of the badge which looks great and correct. Picking colours on a monitor isn't going to work well.

Yeah Vince, you're right about the colours looking different on the computer screen than in real life. I reckon I'll go to the paint shop and grab some sample colour cards. If I get enough of them I can just paste them all over the bike  :D

YELB Green should be available via any auto paint supplier. It is a Ford colour.

Ha, now they are painting the Mustang that colour. https://www.motor1.com/news/236421/mustang-hulks-out-new-green-color/
