    I saw a Triumph Spitmaster, a Speedmaster with a Spitfire custom paint job in the Triumph dealership in Swindon. Very smart if you like that sort of thing - and I do. I took a few photos - not too good but you should be able to see the idea.

    It got me to thinking:. How could you do a classic British Army paint job?

    I think that might be a bit specialist for my taste but...

    A chum suggested a sort donkey walloper sort of paint job. saddles, bridles, guidons and so forth. or as an BFA.
  3. Three shades of green, a mixture of gloss and matt black 'cos you couldn't get enough to finish the job, plus copious amounts of red-lead.

    And if that's supposed to be a proper Triumph, where's the pool of oil under the donk? :D

    Mr Deputy,


    [align=center]The Spitfire theme works beautifully. 2 up for brother crab, but what about us?[/align]

    [align=center]As I'm not a drug dealer I think I would have to body swerve this one. Although as a piece of porn I can admire.[/align]
  5. That first Triumph is a cracker.How much is it?(Not that I could afford it)

    If you mean the 'Spitmaster' in my original post I think it was about £7,500 something like that anyway.
