Since I had my engine out I decided to give it a new colour. It's a Tremclad high gloss grey. I think it looks not bad. I'm sure I'll get stoned for not painting it black, but I wanted to spice up the engine compartment a bit.
Sure don't look gray in the picture
I painted my 1925 motor "Gray Motor Holden" back in 1983. I prefer the non black. Our 1911 is green. Looks more interesting in my opinion. It is a darn site easier to keep clean too.
Looks gray to me. (now)
In real life, it is about half way between your picture and the one I posted. It definitely is on the bluer side of gray (if that makes sense)
No matter. Whatever burns your gasoline. I like the Ford highlighting on the head. Better get some miles on it--Looks too clean.
no, that is a good colour. I've seen old sidecar bikes that colour, and love it.
Here is a quick video of it running after it's first run around the block this morning
