When I last saw your bike the bottom half was a muddy brown colour , just like the spectators who got too close to the course 😊

Black & shiny. All green things go black if you leave them long enough.

Landrover Cotswold Green.
Only because it was in the end of line bin at a discount and I was rebuilding on a tight budget.
The next time it gets rebuilt I'll powdercoat with the correct BS or RAL colour.

The MT500 paint spec is in one of the manuals, it quotes the primer to use as well as the top coat. It is a BS number. If you ask here you'll get a variety of opinions, rarely quoting the original spec. BUT I wouldn't bother, Cotswold Green sounds just fine

Just a thought.
If you think too much about the colour of your MT, you'll earn Tee Shirt No 32 !
