Triumph turns colouring competition into real life bike!

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.”

Fancy turing your dream into reality? Bennetts are delivering a dream every day for 12 days up until Christmas Eve with plenty more to follow in 2013.
