Good luck taking care of it. The Bobber crowd has had a lot of problems with the flat/mat black and other mat colors.

It'd be the same as the T100 mat, no? Are there many issues with that as well?

My Street Twin matt paint has gone shiny where my knees rub against the tank. I like the matt look a lot and haven't had any trouble with cleaning it and keeping the matt look over the rest of the tank, but regular contact against the matt surface definitely ends up polishing up those areas. I'll be getting a respray at some point and will be going with a gloss finish, just for reasons of longevity.

Id love to see a dark silver on the bobber black. I think that would look sexy.

I understand why people with ugly bikes would want to camouflage them in black paint, but Triumph Classics?
