Got my T160 last week! Starting restoration ...

Here she is ... I'm starting a mild restoration ... have exhaust headers and mufflers on order ... will post photos as I progress.

Does anyone have a clean photo of the burgundy/white paint scheme, or can tell me the color codes so I can get the right paint? And is there a gold pinstripe where the burgundy and white meet?

Thanks.
Ken

This is mine...



www.triumphman.com can match the paint perfectly. About $70 for a pint.

Thanks Paul. I was looking for the PMS color since I rather have my painter supply/mix his own paint.

The vertical portion is 9.5 inches overall; the part you set your foot on is 3.5 inches long, and the rubber sleeve is about 2.75 inches long.
