Back to body work, I had a can of Kawasaki 777 Lime green (1979-1984) mixed. Would you believe ther are at least 5 Kawasaki Lime greens available.
Painted a couple of parts in base coat to see if it really is where I want to go. It is the colour from the KR1-KR250.

My local paint shop has 5 versions of Kawasaki 777 Green, all slightly differnt mixes. It changed through the 80's & 90's a few times.
I went with the earliest version they had.
The paint guy said there may not be much difference in the shades, but a keen eye would pick them.

Im late to this party but thought yall might appreciate pictures of my new baby. I only started riding last year and started with a Rebel 250, upgraded to a CB500F for a while and then unexpectedly got the chance to get my dream bike - a lightly customized Triumph Bobber. A friend of mine makes custom bikes and cars and had just started this one when I mentioned I wanted one some day. Timing was right and he finished it for me. Now if its will just stop raining here I can get more time in the saddle. Here are a few pictures from the day I got her.



Custom dripping gold leaf

I am the Bad Wolf

Since I love Celtic art he used that as inspiration

I should get a better pic of the gorgeous custom seat

Next to my now for sale Honda

Looks good! Summer is coming.

Have you seen the video of the Royal Enfield pin striping guys?

I seriously could watch stuff like that all day. The guy who did mine posts videos of some of his work and I love watching them. He does everything from business windows to vehicles. For mine he looked at a bunch of pictures of things that have meaning to me and came up with the design from that. I wish I could have seen him doing the gold leaf work too but they wanted to surprise me with it finished.

Nice Triumph, I only wish they had the bigger engine when I bought mine. If they were bigger than 790cc back then I might still have mine now.
I bike I really enjoyed riding but it was just way too under powered after 30 years of riding 1100+ cc jap fours

I've got a 2013 Moto Guzzi Griso and love it! Also had a 2006 Honda CB600 (599/Hornet) but ended up selling it...that bike was a hooligan!

Once you have gone green there is no way of going back! Apparently.

It's an attention getter for sure. Is that a satin finish, or just not sanded, and buffed yet? I myself 'am not a fan of satin colors, I never even liked satin finish pictures, when that was a thing back in the 70's. It just seems to take away the "Pop" and "Sharpness", to my way of thinking. I'm not trying to knock it? Just not my preference. Damn It's "GREEN" I Love It!

It's just the base coat, still got to put the gloss clear coat on.
Same here, not a fan of satin finish, especially on photos. Makes them look grainy.
