    WTB gray plastics

    Looking to replace the plastics or at least some of it. Looking for the grayish color. The bike is a 1990 green and gray. Let me know if you have anything.

    Thanks
    Brian

    If you don't find the gray original, Procycle sells new full sets in white or black. You could do white and paint them custom color. Then you'd have the originals waiting for the other piece to complete the set.

    Not grey but if you can get by with brand-new take-off BLACK... Gary L. has a complete set.

    Thanks guys, don't think I could handle black plastics with a green tank, I might have to go with white and paint them. Then again they will just get trail rash anyway. Maybe if I make the bike ugly enough people won't want to steal it ;P

    Painted plastic is not as bad as you might think unless you drop your bike a lot. If you scratch or chip it, just give it a good sand to blend the paint edges and the paint should hide it. Mine aren't perfect but at 10 feet away you'd have to be actively looking to see any flaws.

    Finding these one year only plastic colors will be a challenge. Some years back a member here showed us a tan colored bike and I had never seen it before, think it was a Japan model that got over here somehow but was never a color offered here in the US. You need to find your exact year being parted out and hope the plastics remained in decent condition which I highly doubt. Best of luck in your search.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Some people like a certain color that isn't offered in the US and order the parts to change the color. I almost did that with my CB500X. For a while, the red wasn't available in the US but was available in Canoduh.
