1972 Benelli 650S Tornado with original paint. I bought it in England in 2008 and it was actually featured in Motorcycle Classics magazine where it wore Tommaselli clipons, vice reguler handlebars. Here it is pictured outside my house in Italy about 5 yrs ago:

I did - VFR 750

I was stolen one night by a scrote and recovered the next morning by the police

Once I'd fixed the things they had busted to steal it I took it out and broke the chain, and the damage that caused wrote it off  :sad:

Still the replacement was my Cali which brought me into the Guzzi fold!

My '03 Bonneville T100 was Aztec Gold and Goodwood Green. Well, it was before I dropped it. Pictured below with my son onboard in 2004. I'll be giving him that bike this spring...

Interesting, I've had a few green bikes.  I had a green CT70 in my early days of riding.  The two bikes I've painted were done in green.  My first street bike was an '84 GPz900R that I had painted Kawi-Green, and my current '02 CalStone I have painted in late-40's OD.  First clutch bike I bought for the boy was a nice '11 KLX110.  Nice looking little dirty.

The greenest (?) bike I ever had was a Kermit the frog green 1959 BMW R27.   It sure was bright green & not in a good way.

While it's not green yet, my in-process V700 Corsa-Record will be zinc phosphate green just like the real Record bikes.

My one and only Green bike, 1979 Yamaha XS1100SF 1300 Wisco Kit, Kerker 4 into 2 with alternating cross overs, Instead of 12 into left pipe and 34 into right, it was staggered, 1&3 into left pipe 2&4 into right. Gave it a vey different sound. Bike was insane fast, even with a custom fork brace and added frame bracing it was like trying to tame king kong.

My Aermacchi was green. The TR6R started green/gold but by the time I got her the paint had turned mostly to rust. Come to think of it, the factory color of the CB500/4 was similar to the Triumph, but I tossed the original tank when I installed the Dunstall bits. Those three bikes were '69, '70 and '71 model years -- must have been a fashionable shade then.
