Hello my friends!
I'm from Brazil and own a RD 250 1974.
A previous owner painted it with solid yellow (maybe 77's colour) and now I have the mission to repaint with the original one.
In my research I found out that Yamaha sent to Brazil Amber Brown and Brigade Blue.
I prefer the amber brown but I couldn't find anybody to help me develop the paint.
Is it possible to find the formula?
Regards,
Flavio

Hy, Flavio & Andy:
I live in Brasil too (Vila Velha, ES), and my brother is restoring a RD350 1974.
I have already seen a list relating color codes and frame numbers.
There we confirm the Ruby Red original color (it is painted black), and the year of manufactoring.
I will try to find the list again and copy it here.
But the bike has a drum front brake that seems to be there forever, once ther is no caliper support on right front fork...
Is there any notice that RD 350 has received front drum brakes, beyond the R5 model?
Regards
Marco

I'm back!
Ok, the list has a lot of frames and is not a ctrlc/ctrlv stuff. Here is the link:
http://www.cyclerestorer.com/pages/show_year_serial_num.php?bike_year=1974&manufacturer=Yamaha
There is a correlation between these range of frame numbers 352-200101--211280 and the Amber Brown N3 color.
If your bike is in the range, it was probably Amber; or Blue, if it is out...

I am in the United States. I have '74 RD350 and it is a light purple color. So I guess there are different colors for different parts of the world.
