Light Gold rims
« on: September 27, 2017, 12:52:38 PM »
Anyone know where to find light Gold rims? The best suggestion so far is to paint them.

How light do you mean?
Full circle racing's site seem to show a couple of different shades of gold
My YZ465 had old Sun rims, not sure how that compared to what they do now

Its for a Husky , so the early 80's type on Huskies or Kawasaki's. The full Circles racing ones are close , have you purchased any from them?

Suns are quite gold gold, don't think they are the light gold desired here. Excels are usually a more darker orange gold. Surely a good annodizer will have a selection of gold colours? I have seen some KX guys get them done somewhere, not sure who does it though.

check Hardo's old posts from when he had the parts from his KX re anodised. Light gold like OEM Kawasaki, I think it was called A4 Gold from a Sydney based company of good reputation.
