T25ss wheel hub paint

Post by Captain » Mon Jul 04, 2011 5:00 pm

Hi Guys,
I'm restoring a 1971 OiF T25ss (B25 in Triumph clothes) and I'm trying to find out what shade of silver the front and rear wheel hubs were painted.
Does anyone know the answer?

Cheers

ps. I'm new to the site and am very impressed and grateful for all the technical info that has been supplied. It has already helped immensely.

Welcome to the forum Captain <135

I have moved this to the tech section, because while the answer might become a technical write-up about paint, it is more of a technical question at the moment!!

Don't worry, it what I do. How about starting a topic in the "Project Bikes" section, show us some photos and let us know how you are getting on.

When I did my 72 Bonneville, I tried to polish them but found they were really hard anodized. So, I punted and went with one of the Eastwood silvers. I am at work right now but can check tomorrow when I am home. It came out very good. I am turning my full attention on the 250SS

I was never inclined to re-paint the conical hubs on my B25/B50's when I restored them as I believe BSA did it purely on cost grounds. Although it was considerably more effort, I polished all my hubs and the results were infinitely better!

RAL9006 was a very good match for mine.
