What Colour

Post  adespin on Thu 23 Feb - 23:17

Now that the Townmate is stripped to the bare bones and awaiting shotblasting, i'm thinking of changing the colour, i've had enough of the dull cossack grey, maybe the alternative original metalic blue or i rather like the metalic red as used on some later models Honda Cubs. Are there any pic's out there of T80's in red?

Doesn't look so good in pastel colours, i was thinking more along the lines of a darker metalic red.

Still undecided, probably a metalic red , but what shade ?? Going for the frame shotblast tomorrow, found a local firm who will do it while i wait for £40, don't know what the going rate is but that seems reasonable.

used to work for a shot blasting firm its very reasonable just make sure your got all the bearings and any surfaces well protected with plenty of tape that you don't want blasted
