Greeves Paint

Recommended Posts

The early Greeves models had their tubework painted with a 'Hammerite' finish which I feel was known as Moorland Blue.  Does anyone know a modern equivalent?

Hi All,

 

I've just had an interesting 'phone call from an old friend who sold new Greeves in his shop.  His input was: "You had to be careful how you displayed the new models, because the colour on the frames could vary noticeably - the tales were that they were painted straight out of the paint can and if the paint came from several batches you might even end up with visible colour shades on different bits of a new bike."

 

His advice?  "Pick a shade you like - and paint it that colour............."

For anyone still interested the paint code RAL5001 works very well in either powder coating form or mixed as gloss paint by your local Dulux center. Am using it on my '62 model 250 Scottish.
