Anyone know the RAL number for the pearl / oyster white used on the Raleigh frames in the 80's?

Thanks
Matt

Back in my day which is the 70's Raleigh used their own codes starting with CF. CF01 was black etc. Someone might have a chart somewhere that translates but never seen a comprehensive one.

Even a close match is fine if the RAL code doesn't exist - I am just trying to avoid a complete respray as I want to keep as much of the paint original

Cheers

Yes I do, and still have an original touch up paint bought with my 1984 (Oyster) Corsa - my SBDU in the same paint.

Ha, no way!!

Would you be willing to share that info? I had to have a seat stay re-brazed as it had a small crack (shot in style), and as I say I would like to keep the bike as original as possible.

Cheers
Matt

I have looked over alot of stuff on the webz and started to create a color chart thingy.. feel free to add comments and suggest colors that are missing or to make ammends. Unless someone else has started doing this already?

Hey Matt!

Have you ever found a close match? I'm currently facing the same problem.
