    is he blue frame paint available still?

    hello chaps.
    i'm looking at the pictures of my basket case '89 TW, and may actuallly just get it running and ride it rather than a full bare frame rebuild.
    the frame looks pretty ok apart from the heel/boot wear area. anyone know if i can buy touch up paint - or had success with other paint a similar colour?
    ken

    Over here in the States, if you have a chip of the paint, you can go to a hardware store like Home Depot or Lowe's and they will match it. How about a Yamaha dealer?

    Your 26 year old paint is probably faded and wouldn't match the touch up paint anyway. I would find a color that is real close and scuff & paint all the parts of the frame that show. Take off the covers and easy stuff then just lay rags on the engine and other parts you don't want paint on. It'll look good as new. I clear coated my frame that way. I think a touch up job will look like a touch up job. Maybe that's ok...dunno.

    Try getting a chip of it matched somewhere. I think they even put it in spray cans these days...?

    Took a look & found this, you might want to do the whole frame as was earlier suggested to blend the fading.
