    Changing the colour

    Evening all,
    Just throwing some ideas around. Iím ďthinkingĒ of changing the colour of my TTSE from Pacific Blue to White Gold, this is a colour that Rover used on the Rover 75 when they were about.
    I also like Cranberry Red, my bike is now showing some age related marks, itís a late 2013 reg, on a 63 plate.
    Although it cleans up nice, and looks good in the light, but if you start looking at it, you start to see that itís sort of showing itís age.
    I have a spare pannier cover, I may spray it over the weekend to see what it would look like, I will post it on here to see what you good people think.

    I (have) considered British racing green.
    TTSE bleu
    ex: Dnepr, Ural, BMW R1200RT :-))
    Some old Saabs, Daimler serie 3, and STR jag.

    Cranberry Red does look good .....
    ( Don't ever BUY this particular '62 Plate Bike if you come across it though !  )

    British Racing Green ( offered on the previous Trophy model ) is also rather nice !

    When I flew out and bought my New Old Stock 2015 just about a year ago and riding it home I was thinking of ways to change the color.  Even pondered a vinyl wrap over painting all the plastic.  After spending quite a few hours on it and realizing how much time and effort it would take to pull all the plastic I started to like the Pacific Blue.   :002:  I was thinking of some Matte White color to make it unique.

    I will say I had a 2008 Royal Enfield Bullet Classic in British Racing Green (with Gold pinstripes).

    Wilko - the white gold - AKA Platinum? I had this on my 1998 900 Trophy - a nice colour but I think it might date the bike. My father in law had this on his Rover 875 - amazingly close in colour, side by side very hard to tell the difference

    I've also been thinking about colour changes - I have the really fast Phantom black but love the slower blue colours  :745:

    Vinyl wraps are definitely a consideration - I'd be happy to remove the panels, but you do need to look at the price of just buying different colour panels, might be pretty competitive.
    you can't buy happiness but you can buy a motorcycle - which is the same thing :-)
