My RS has gone in for its long awaited paint job. I visited the Altamura Factory yesterday & to be honest i was overwhelmed at the quality of the work that they do there. The colour, attention to detail & finish are unbelieveable. The bike will be away for 6 weeks & ill be counting the days.
:D :D :D

Thanks Mark(happy new year by the way mate) i must admit that i am really excited about it, i know its not really a Benelli colour but i just think it is going to suit the shape so much. I have wanted a race rep since i was 6...Thats 15 years now!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Good God

Matey..
You r running the risk of having a bike that will be TOOOO nice to ride. You'll get leathered up, go out to your garage and that will be it. You'll just sit there polishing your helmet while stairing at your beauty.
Very similar to me not 20 mins back looking at the pic's in your gallery.

its funny, i was thinking the same thing, i was driving behind another car yesterday when they turned there windscreen washers on & covered my car in water, i thought that if i was on my pristine Nelli i would probably give them a slap at the next set of lights.....this could be serious :p :p

Its going to be a headturner more than already with your new paint job - people wont initially think Benelli and the curves of the Tornado will take on a whole new look - Brave Man :clap: . As soon as its done get a pic up and let us all Bow and clap in unison . (anyone ever had a Benelli WSB paint job done - oldish i know but different from the norm) :)

Its away for 6 weeks as Altamura do everything with Air Brush, no decals like Dream Machine use. I have chosen MV red & silver as i want a real deep Red, they also finish it with tiny prisms of Gold in the Laquer which catch the light. As soon as i get it back ill Post lots of piccys for your approval. I am sure that they could do a WSB replicar, someone out there should go for it, even better would be a new WSB entry for us all to cheer this year & copy ........are you listening Benelli

Lee would it be cheeky to ask what kind of money they charge for the paint job? Sounds like they really know what they are doing.

Theres a simple way to work it out friend. Take Lee's showbiz age from his real age and stick 3 0's after it.(c above for Lee's ages). Then add sundries (usually a£1000) and vat at 150%...Thats the price. I've had a few paint jobs over the years and never worked how they come to the price yet :confused:
