Paint code / supplier - wheels

Anyone know the paint code or a supplier of paint (preferably aerosol) for the gold wheels 99 ST2. A link would be great. My paint/powder coat has started to flake off the rear. See colour below.

I looked high and low for the same info for my '99 and came up with nada.

Contacted Ducati and they say, "Ducati no longer manages information concerning the paint codes for the ST2..."

The folks at Prismatic Powders recommended Sutters Gold, which was pretty close to the frame color. The online pic doesn't look like it, but you can get a handful of free sample swatches from them to match up. It's obviously powder and not aerosol, though...

The probability of matching it exactly is pretty slim, especially if you plan on touch up work rather than a complete respray. It's more than a color match, there is a matte sort of texture to match as well. For my wheels and frames I have bought the ColoRite pens. It's very hard to get a good match with any pen, but it's not that bad. I imagine the paints they offer to spray are closer. https://www.colorrite.com/

The gold on my 916 frame was a better match than the grey on my ST4s frame using the pens.

Maybe just do the wheels in black and be done with it? Black always looks good!

Edit: Just had a look myself. Sorry to say it looks like they no longer carry the frame paints. Only the bodywork stuff. Too bad, they were pretty decent for touch ups.

Thanks for the reply. Have done some google searches ans sutters gold looks pretty good, not sure I want to go powder coat though, its just a few flaky patches.

SS904 Thanks for the work. I am considering black but will try and find a touch up and see how it goes first.

Any thoughts on this one I found on ebay?

Thought I would update in case anyone else searches for this.

Ordered this and it looks damn close. Put a dot of it on the wheel to try it and I can't tell the difference.

Am going to be using it on the flaking soon, will be a bit of a challenge as some of the patches are quite large and it's a touch up rather than a spray, worth a go though.
