Sprite Mark 1 Tank Colour And Graphics

Recommended Posts

Hi, Does anyone know the colour(red) of the earliest Sprites and what the graphics were like( ??? 'Sprite '..handwritten)? As much detail as possible please.

I'd also like to hear from as many Sprite owners as possible please.

I have started a flicr group with photos of Sprites. I wonder if there are any left which are as they left the factory?

I am collecting parts for my mark one and hope to start the build soon.

I am considering to do mine US style with lots of shiney bits and modern colours.

I have a photo of the tank on mine which a pal was going to do some computer work on it to make a file for a signmaker to do a vynil cut.

It seems thats what they had in the day.

I was wondering if they had vynil cut stickers in 1964?

Ill put a photo of my petrol tank on flicr so you can see for yourself.

I was also hoping to find out what more info there is on these bikes and the works of Hipkin and Evans as all over the internet is the same paragraph copied out of I believe, Don Morelys book.
