I bought a third WNG project earlier this year. Mostly there, strange mudguards and a few other bits missing but some really good original bits though (jaeger early speedo, long throttle etc). Different shades of handpainted green, black and rust.
cos I have two WNG's on the road (with panniers etc etc) i thought I'd just whack on some alloy short guards, run without lights or chaincases and put a scrambles cam in.
Stripped it to bits and decided to powdercoat a few bits, as it seemed silly not to with everything apart.
I know a man that does powdercoating for cash, although he takes a few weeks. He's done lots of stuff for me over the years and it's been good and rugged.
Dropped it down a month ago - he didn't have an exact green to anything already on there but reckoned he could find something similar.
Had a call from him weds saying that the choice of greens were limited but he had a "moss green" which he's done for spitfires before ... (he knows it's a ww2 bike) but it's satin. I look up ww2 spitfires and, knowing te variety of green colours on bikes and that it'll be covered in oil and muck within a year then I'm good.
I'll take a picture in a moment, when I can face going in the garage.
What he meant was MG Spitfire green .................... which is almost, but not quite racing green ... I could have cried.
What to do ?
the forks, front wheel and tank are in different shades of olive/khaki green .. but now the frame, rear wheel, toolbox, engine plates and metal other bits are the colour of a 1970's car...
