Hi, I am in the midst of a restoration project and would like to hear any opinions on what is the best options when it comes to paint work. My bike has original factory paint but it has seen better days especially the mudguards. My question is do I try to get the original paint work restored or go for a complete respray. My bike came with full factory fairing so a full respray ain't gonna be cheap. Thinking of resale value in the future as it's an investment for my son in years to come.
Cheers Chris.

Knowing how the paint aged on Triumphs of this vintage I doubt the original paint can be brought back. Especially if yours is the smoky red fade to black finish. Without some pictures to see what you have good advice is had to give.
