Rather a different shade of blue.
No suggestion anything to do with FireFlake.

One of said steel sidecovers, in closeup. So painted.

And a FireFlake Roman Purple tank (on a bike !) in fibreglass at a Mecum auction,
in all its purpleness - flakes in the gelcoat.
Unfaded - and rare to see (?).

And a very smart looking Blue on the forsale list.
So likely a repaint - and not very FireFlake (its VERY fine in the closeups)
And, no mention of Dunstall pipes

And an exceedingly original looking 850 Mk2 in Milwaukee
He's calling it Pacific Blue.

A sidecover on a project bike from H&H Classics.
The genuine article.
Tank is a different blue ... (so we won't view it here)
