Question Red Paint code/color code

Hi there,

I'm looking for paint code for a MV Agusta 125cc from 1957 in MV Agusta Red.
Have tried mr. google without any luck, only a few sites that sell the paint, I only need the code so it can be mixed by a local painter.

Thanks in advance

If you can't get the code, find a reputable paint shop with a spectograph. It's a camera that scans the paint and produces the mix 'ingredients' via computer. This is especially good for older or vintage bikes/vehicles that might have suffered sun fade or degradation in other areas. I have used this facility for a couple of match ups (MV F4 and Honda) and have been elated with results.

Lechler Paint Codes

MV1 Rosso Chiaro - no models given - 1958 to 1970

MV2 Rosso - no models given -1952 to 1956

MV 1239 Rosso - 175 Sport Disco Vol - 1956 to 1958

The difference between MV1 and MV2 is that one is slightly more orange than the other

According to my paint man you need a reasonable sized flat panel to get an accurate paint match using spectrometry. Then it will not be the same as the original due to fading and weathering

Though you can find the Lechler paint codes for Italian vintage bikes here (MV is on page 39):

The challenge is finding a supplier who can get the actual paints used to meet the code.
As posted earlier it may well be easier go to a automotive paint supply shop who has tools such as the Spectrograph to do the match.
