Scott Gabriel would have known.. He had a beautiful lilac Le Champion. Every time I see one of those bikes I think of him... I sure miss rootboy.

"Found a close match paint code Ditzler - PPG number 73024. Tricky color, not exact but similar to Audi 1987 called 'taupe'."

1975 Motobecane Le Champion (silver lilac) Finally Finished!

I found this audi paint chart page that has a different name for the lilac, graulila.


The gold trim with the lilac is amazing.
