Colouring competition Triumph comes to life!
Plenty of kids colour in pictures of bikes, but not many get them turned into reality! But that’s exactly what happened when 12-year-old Max Milnes from Leeds coloured in a bike an entered it into a Triumph Competition.

The prize was to see the winning design made into a real life bike, so last week Milnes went to the Triumph factory to see his felt-tip creation turned into a reality in Triumph’s paint shop on a Triumph Rocket III.

Triumph also gave Milnes a factory tour and a side panel of the bike he designed, plus a goodie bag containing a Triumph watch, t-shirt, full scale motorcycle model and a cap.

Dean Driver, paint shop stores team leader at Triumph, said: “Max’s design won the competition due to the colours chosen and how well they worked together. Max had clearly spent a considerable amount of time colouring the bike in and had come up with interesting three tone splits on all of the larger parts. It was a challenge to create but great to be able to bring his design to life.”
