    Does anyone know where I could obtain the paint codes from the Meriden/Small Heath era? I’m trying to track down the candy apple red/black scheme as used on the 1979/80 140E export model. I don’t want to use cardinal red on the T160.

    Unfortunately nothing was set in stone regarding paint codes at Triumph. Just try getting a code for the Aquamarine Trident. I have used John Chrichlow, Tricolour, telephone 02476312777 or mobile 07773296826..  I have found that John has immense knowledge of Triumph paints from Meriden. Good luck

    Thanks Ian, I’ll give him a call. I tried RS Paint, but the nearest they got was Cherokee Red which I think is off an earlier model and was too dark. I offered to send photo’s of bikes in the relevant colour in a variety of light conditions as a reference point, but they need to see an actual panel or tank to mix against.

    I’ve got a genuine original paint T140E 1979 m.y. home market tank on the shelf here in Coventry. You can borrow that for a scan of the black and candy apple red colours if that would help.

    Contacted John Critchlow at MS Motorcycles and he was able to provide the paint in cellulose, which can be lacquered over with 2-pack provided, all trace of thinners has evaporated.
