Theme Tuesdays: Gulf Livery

3

The orange, blue, and white colour scheme of the Gulf Oil Company is without a doubt one of the most popular colourways among autosport.

These colours obviously look right at home on their native race cars from the 60s, 70s and 80s but they also transfer over well to a variety of other 2 and 4 wheeled vehicles as showcased today.

I don’t post many bikes (mostly because I am trying to avoid them until a mid-life crisis) but damn if this doesn’t look good

This Harley Ironhead has a slightly different take on the colours but looks just as good

Love the rear fender and clever quasi legal plate placement
