    I’m new to the group, just having bought a 1974 Trident (American market). The tank, and oil reservoir covers had all been painted blue by a previous owner. I am trying to determine what the factory paint scheme would have been. The Trident badge on the side has a red background so my assumption is that the tank would have had a matching black/red paint scheme. I plan to get it repainted, but want to stick to original colors.

    Hi frank,  i recently had my t160 repainted to original colours and I used good old Google to find pictures of original colour schemes, also found information on colour names and where to find them.

    hi Frank,

    A 1974 T150v is black with gold flashes for UK and export models, I agree with Kevin, use Google to find a good photo use that to colour match,
