If you scroll down this link you'll see a 56. That may help you a bit.

Thanks for your help.
Does anyone have the formula for Champion Yellow. In DuPont or paint brand available in Australia.
Cheers 1panfan

Hi all
I found a old forum topic with 56 tank stripes & have contacted John Pierce at colourite & he has sold me a set of templates from an original paint bike.he has also sold me a swatch to match champion yellow as he cannot ship paint out of the country.
All should be good now,can't wait to see the finished bike.
Thanks
