Ever been on the Triumph factory visit? Or one of the other Euro bike factories? They all make a bit of a show of their skilled painters. Generally, as well as a high-tech robotic spray-painting setup,  there will be a department of borderline-OCD guys and gals, who spend their working lives producing small works of art on bike fuel tanks and other bits of bodywork.

It’s an amazing sight to be fair: these folk perform miracles with a small pot of special cellulose paint (usually gold or white), and an olde-worlde paintbrush, together with one of those sticks with a padded suede ball on the end (called a mahlstick apparently), and always with fancy white gloves. Bold, sweeping lines curve round the complex shapes of a Bonneville fuel tank in one slick flourish.

No mess, no fuss, no mistakes – and then the artiste will sign their name on the bottom of the tank. Back to the main paint shop for a quick mist of protective lacquer and you have a gorgeous hand-finished fuel tank. And shame on any of you who are wondering why they don’t just pay £75k for another one of those painting robots from the spray booths to do it 24/7…

These hand-painted gold coach lines have been a big hit for Triumph on several of its limited edition modern classic bikes over the years (including the 2021 Steet Twin Gold Line), as well as on optional aftermarket parts. And for 2022, the Hinckley firm is celebrating with not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven (come on Al)  but EIGHT special edition machines.

They’re all limited to one year’s production, and are based on the latest 2021 spec Bonneville T100 and T120, Speedmaster and Bobber, plus the Street Scrambler, and both XE and XC Scrambler 1200 models. Lovely things, and well worth considering if you were in the market for one of these models for sure.
