Simplicity-branded bolts?        I really enjoy some of the old hardware on these machines.

Beautiful job, it's going to be a people stopper at shows.

What was the green that you ended up using?

Custom-mixed by a friend at a body shop.....and sprayed there too.  

They had some sort of electronic gizmo that scans a surface and then converts it into a paint recipe.  

The green on the inside of the rims was still in excellent condition.

 

I'll have to ask him if he can still get me the details.    

 

In my opinion, it is VERY close to a Kawasaki green; the same color they used on their KX motocross bikes in the 90's when the frames were still made of cromoly steel.
