Well, despite liking the Tenni Green colour scheme I've decided I'll stick it on the shelf for resale when someone wants it. Also, despite being pretty it's not exactly uncommon so I've sent the 'Tree Frog' bodywork off for a fresh lick of paint.

Originally I was thinking a midnight blue similar to one of the colour schemes I had on my little Tonti hot-rod back in the day but eventually I succumbed to that deep, two tone metallic red that Mazda are using at the moment.

It's a bit of a break from my usual choices which generally trend to yellow or green, but I've got a yellow one and the 'Tree Frog' was looking a bit threadbare twelve years on so why not go for something completely different?

I've got a set of black badges for it which I think will be far more decorous than the standard red ones. I'm hoping it'll be done within a fortnight.

Only other things I have on my 'To Do' list for it are sorting the forks and mounting the luggage. I'm hoping to have all that done before Tony's cabal in October!

Thumbs Up

Not for me. Didn't the Kawasaki ER5 come in that colour?

Dunno. I had an ER5 I bought for a visiting son of an old pommy mate, it was rattle-can black. Laughing It was also a complete POS but it made for a memorable holiday for him…….

Nah, all those colours Guzzi are currently using are matt finish like the Tenni green. They used them to good effect in a blue and red on the last Stelvios and the Diavolo Rosso Grisos too.

I really am not a great fan of matt paint on the whole though.

That metallic red on the mazda’s is something I keep noticing & admiring.

Good choice.

There is always Ford Race Red...... The Convert seems to like it well enough. I prefer flat colors over Metallic on Motorbikes.

I like the red colour of the 750 Breva, - not unlike the Mazda-red...

Isn't the Mazda red similar to the red of the V100?

Grisos have to be black though ... ;-)
