    What color is it?

    Just wondering??? I haven't seen the bike in person so I was just wondering what the color is called. Vech and his employees at Bench Mark Works are fantastic and a wealth of knowledge as he has proven to me on two restoration projects. The customer service doesn't stop after his work is complete either, that has also been proven to me time and time again. I wish more information on the bike and the restoration had been put into the link. Congratulations Craig!!! You do good work and your shop is one of the best I just want to know about the color.

    I'm not certain, but I think it is Bristol Gray. Jeff Dean mentions it as a special order on this page:

    It looked a little dark to me

    I own the Bristol Grey R 69S that appears in the RA adds, it just looked a little darker than mine but it may be the lighting. I knew he was doing an R 50S but he never mentioned the color to me at the RA Rally in Asheville. Anyway its a nice looking bike and a well deserved award.
