So, I was in my local dealer Jack Lilleys on Saturday booking my other bike in for an MoT and the service guy said to me "Come and have a look at this"


Off we went into the workshop and they were just taking photos of the latest custom bike they've done:





It's got a whole heap of mods including bars, back end and pipes.


The main thing is the rust finish. Apparently done by stripping the paint off, treating it with a chemical that quickly induces rust, then neutralising it before finally sealing. I've got to say, it looks really good.


Here's a close up of the rear to show the rusty finish:





More pics available from the lindtriumph instagram account (where I stole these from).

I told him not to leave his bike standing out in the rain too long! NOW look at it...!!

;-)
Looks pretty cool actually! I wouldn't want it on mine, but I like it.

Cheers!

Nice take on the vintage look.
And I agree, those turn signals stand out like a sore thumb with that paintjob.
