    1978 R100RS Paint Color

    I'm looking at getting my oilhead, a 2003 R1150RT, repainted in a color from the past. I have always liked the metallic gold used on the 1978 R100RS. I think it was used only that one year. I have found sites with the color codes, but not the name. Holt BMW can supply the Glasurit paint in a 3 stage system.

    My question is, if I can't find a painter in my area who is willing and able to use the original Glasurit paint, what color can I name that he can use to come up with the closest match?
