It went something like this:
So let me get this straight: You're frustrated with the fuel metering on a couple of '90's era Yamahas and a modern dual carbed Triumph and want some simplicity in your life. You feel that the answer lies in a '69 Honda with two carbs. :ponder:

I'm gonna need more popcorn for this show... :lolno:

:) Yeah, me too. Hey, I've got some pizza and might have a extra beer too, if you're into that. This is bound to be an interesting experiment / rebuild / ???

Fantastic, can't wait for this, love the old stuff :thumbsup: ... are you going for classic restoration or a one off special ?
I think I'll do a rehab instead of a restoration. That way, I won't have to worry about accurate colors, bolt and nut types, etc. I can paint it and assemble it to work and look good without it needing to be accurate.

That being said, what do you all think of Rover's BRG (paint code HNA/617) for a color on this one?
Personally I've never been a big fan of British Racing Green, maybe because it's been done to death in this Country

Reason I'm looking at BRG is that this bike was originally green and white, but not metallic. Probably a cellulose paint originally. I think the BRG gets me close to that original color and since it is so widely available, is easy for me to get in a spray can.

This is what this bike would have looked like in original condition. Right now, I want to keep that original paint scheme:

I think that original paint scheme looks pretty good. But then again, I like the BRG as I had a Triumph Spitfire 1500 in that color.
