    I can imagine the conversation with the salesman now when you come to sell it and start to discuss the part ex price. Lots of sucking of teeth, sharp intakes of breath and "Non standard paint job Sir, that will be difficult to shift, we can only offer £1000 below book I'm afraid".

    It's not as bad as you think, because:

    1. I keep my bikes for many years. I still have my last two (Daytona 1200SE - 15 years and Sprint 900 - 18 years). At this age, trade in value is meaningless. I originally rode the bike for 3 months / 5,000 miles and knew it would be another keeper before I committed to being this radical with it.

    2. The dealer loves it and has had several other new Triumphs painted by 8 Ball and they then sell them at a premium. Okay, they aren't as radical as this one, but it didn't stop them from taking lots of photos of it.

    John.
