UPDATE- Blatantly lifted from JD's post at the Yahoo forum:

"That particular Teal, Pearl Teal Green, was available only in '94 and '95, as
the base color for the Teal/Blue color combination. The Candy Atlantic Blue was
the tank decal color on the 500, 750, 1500A and Voyager, the wide accent stripe
on the fenders of the 1500A and Voyager, and the accent panel color on the
Voyager fairing and bags. It was also the base color for '92 and '93, with the
accent color being Pearl Chateau Gray.

The Pearl Teal Green was the accent color for the '92/'93 Green/Teal combo, with
Pearl windsor Green being the primary..."
JD

so I stand corrected, that specific Teal was available for 2 model years. Photo of color so you all know what we are talking about here:

I would guess it belongs to someone here, or on the Yahoo group. The actual color of the bike is Teal...which should tell you what year the bike is too cause they only made it that color for one model year.

Correctamundo. You can tell by the patch of orange grass next to the front tire. I am not sure whose bike it is, I just found it randomly on my PC.


And yes Candy Apple Green is a real color:
http://tinyurl.com/nxr654

Most of the time it has a metal flake or pearl finish to it. Candy Apple green and candy apple red were as mentioned big colors used for custom cars in the early 70's....usualy very heavy with the metal flake.

Kawasaki Green is more subdued, as the green in this jacket:
http://tinyurl.com/ldb4fy

There is also neon green, dayglow green (which is usualy called chartruse) and the ever popular "Monkey Vomit Green" which is that weird metalic seafoam/washed out lime crappy ass green you see on new buicks driven by real old people.

In automotive colors , the most varied color is blue. Ranging from a almost bleached out powder blue to that real dark blue that looks black at night.
Try this with green and you end up with alot of not so good looking colors. For some reason blue always seems pleasent.

I don't know about the KAW MX green, but it probably would look stunning on the 750...
yes that is a color Fergy,very 70's though

shark88 There's a 900 custom in a shop near me that looks really sharp in that green. I like it.

OlHossCanada I haved never been overly fond of green on cars and trucks, but that green looks good on the bike. Is that green on the fender the same Kawi green that is on the vn900 custom?
