Regardless, this is how I plan to paint my project bike, straight gloss black. I like it!

Interesting guess, but no cigar . . . .

That's a photo taken in Holland showing a gathering organised by a gentleman by the name of Theo Terweil (sp?) who owns a business which specialises in painting R90S bodywork. That particular gathering was held only a few years ago IIRC.
'76 R90S silver smoke
'75 R90/6 hybrid
