Hey Guys, I have a 2002 warrior that I'm doing a 280 conversion on, I have my Fender that needs to get painted but don't know if my Warrior is a stock color or of it was painted at some point in it's life. I tried searching the website color-rite that some have suggested in other posts but had no luck. Any help is greatly appreciated.. thanks guys, I attached a picture of my bike

Need a better pic to see the color. 02 came in black, violet, red, dark grey. Looks like it's been painted.

Nice bike and exhaust. Looks like a "custom cut" on the tip

Yea, she's awesome looking, I got it last year in Phillie. It had some extra stuff I won't have to do to it. I didn't even ride it though I went straight to 280 conversion, finally getting it all back together now, And get to enjoy her. :giggle:

Welcome to the 280 fat back club. You will get a lot of comments on how good it looks Just about everywhere you park it. Only bad side is how much a 280 tire cost $300+.:rolleyes:

So it's an 02 and you put a 04 and newer seat on it, very nice.
I was thinking the same thing. Also, the rear fender looks like an '04 or newer. I can't quite tell about the fender struts but I suspect those are the newer struts as well...

Hahahh you guys are completely right, I just dug up the title to get it registered and it's definitely a 2004, So I went back to Color-rite to see if maybe the color would show up, but it still didn't. Sighs, but Yea I've had the tire sitting in my garage for close to a year cost 340$. It'll all be worth it in a few days.

Nice ride. Looking forward to seeing the new paint & 280 kit. I’m interested in a 260/280/300 kit myself. Where did you get it?

I don't think so bro, that indigo is super bright purple, my purple is very dark almost black looking. Here's more pics I took today after rolling it out of my garage for the first time in a year with it's rear end finally intact hahah. Gonna drop the fender off tomorrow hopefully for paint to a shop in Long Island that paint matches.

Your bike color looks like mine. Dark Cherry, without the flames. Maybe black primer with the Dark Cherry paint. I know the paint on mine is grey primer with the Dark Cherry and it looks a little lighter color. I still can't tell the color from your pics very good but it don't look indigo to me.

Hey guys, to anyone who might be interested I found a place in Long island that paint matches perfectly it's called the Auto Paint Depot in Deer Park, they're great people with amazing prices. Here's my fender painted and installed. I painted the fender myself with help from a friend

Very nice. I’m waiting for delivery of my low & mean full front fender, I’m thinking painting myself. Not sure I’ll have your same results as you, you did a great job 👍🏻
