Love the red frame. One of the first Norton cafe racers I saw (back in the sixties) was red and silver and I still lust after it. She broke my heart. All hot and sexy.  Such a tease.

As for the G50 seat and Manx tank.... Beach you don't change you old dog.  :-)

Keep having fun

Teazer,

It's turning out as I'd envisaged ......... ALL the '60's stereotype styling cues - even the Blower [ vs Turbo ] is of the day !! I had 3 Shorrock blown Triumphs in the 60's, one an outfit, one "Sprint" bike and one in a Tribsa road bike.

I'm at a bit of a crossroads now with colours. Actually you've nailed it with the silver - maybe with traditional "Norton" tank striping in Red. BTW - when I was a mere youff of 16 I was poking my nose in at the Bracebridge Street race shop and watched in awe as an old boy striped up some Manx tanks.

COLOURS ................opinions ?

Still some way off - but I have the 60's trad paint vs some modern / race inspired scheme? As I've come this far with keeping the 60's Cafe Racer ethos, guess I have to go all the way now ? Boring to you young [ under 50 ] upstarts - but ...............

DEFINITELY blower now - all "I"s dotted and "T"s crossed as to POC.

I scored an 1 3/4" SU yesterday so I have the option when it comes to "how big", as I already have a 2" on the shelf.

That does mean I will be clearing the shelves of ALL my turbos [ CT20, Garrett and 2 x IHIs ] and parts. All except the CT20 are suitable for m/cycle use [ blow through ]. Also selling a superb M45 [ Mercedes ] Eaton - absolutely NO play in bearings and coupler. It's actually the best condition blower I've had to date.

It may not be what you are looking for but I have loved this since I layed eyes on it...  might go well with your red frame too

FUNNILY ENOUGH .................. I was kicking around the idea of a curling Union Flag ribbon, pretty much where the curves are on that paint job ! You know - like the "Patriots" helmet flash.

I want to take the bike to the " Glemseck" meet in Germany [ hence the name ]. Of course, I have the half fairing to paint as well.

Anyway thanx for your input

Union Jack on top is rather Italian Job minis but can be made to look good and it adds some color and makes a point. Brexit - there's not exit.  England still rules the waves sort of statement.  Not subtle but the paint should be as outrageous as the bike. :-)

Looking very 'period' Beach, coming together nicely.

I'd say you've hit the nail on the head with a mainly silver scheme, or a vintage race rep style paint job.
