Shell Blue Sheen

I finally found the right first race car of Vaughn on Bring a Trailer. My first car was a Sprite Should I have to help out with the maintenance I already have a intimate knowledge of every f@#king nut and bolt on the car...

Since I have the uncanny ability to turn nearly anything back to the subject of motorcycles I couldn't help noticing how close that color is Triumph's Shell Blue Sheen. Shell Blue Sheen is possibly by favorite factory paint color (for the Pre-Unit era for sure). It's the color I've been most strongly considering for my '61 project.

I spotted this bike on the Zon blog recently thinking I really liked the color. I wasn't til I saw it side-by-side with with Shell Blue that I realized how close the colors really are.
