      Hi Terry

      Yes, quite pleased with the finished result. Working around the lockdown restrictions I chose to coach paint the frame and rear mudguard in RAL 5001. No doubt some will say it’s too this, or too that. It is a Special so colour and finish will always be subjective. A couple of days cleaning the wheels and finishing off to go.

      Thanks for the compliment. It is appreciated.

      Phil

              Looks good Phil, considering the bashing its had over the years, maybe several GRA trials together.

                Indeed Dave. Greeves engineering and the Triumph motor certainly tested.

                  Hi Phil,

                  I hope it still has that glorious engine note that I well remember from one day when we were both in the same trial

                    Yes, still the same exhaust. I remember a South Midland Centre trial at Dews Farm. Quite muddy, so lots of revs from the Triumph. They do Rev, even the early 1957 engines.

                      You're right, Phil it probably was Dews Farm. I rode there several times. I recall seeing (and hearing) you giving it a handful up one of those muddy banks. Music!
