“Here at Triumph, a handful of artists add these flawless details to our most iconic range of motorcycles….if you own a Triumph with hand-painted detailing, have a look under the front of your seat where it meets the fuel tank, or underneath the tank itself, to see which artist detailed your motorcycle.”
The process, according to Triumph’s website, involves a two-toned gas tank, with the joint between the two colors smoothed down.
The artist then, in a single movement, applies the gold line in a surgically straight line with a sword-liner brush, after which point the end product is sealed with the finishing lacquer.
“The paints used for gold lining are specially formulated by mixing powder pigments with a cellulose lacquer to achieve the exact consistency required for such intricate brushwork,” continues the commentator.
“Each hand-lined Triumph is then adorned with the artist’s initials, a personal touch that makes every hand-painted Triumph special.”
Check out the video above for the visuals of this aesthetically pleasing process, be sure to also take a gander at the specs of the new Ruroc Atlas 4.0 helmet that’s just been debuted, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.
