Thanks for all your responses, some good ideas. I the gold R wheels on mine but is not an R.

I always assumed that purple street triples arent that sought after? The main reason for not selling mine is the condition (2,300 miles, only rode in dry, FSH and immaculate in every sense).

I do get about on mine, so it gets seen. I only have to park it on a sunny day and people want to come and look at it. Photo's never show how good the colour is. I flirted with the idea of a second set of coloured bits. I was going to go for Cranberry Red, maybe with gold wheels, but finances took a turn for the worse, so I've put that idea aside, for now.

The original blazing orange was a stand out colour, even with the rest of the bike in OEM black. Maybe look at some of the interesting colours from earlier in Triumphs range before they got all safe...

I actually really like Imperial Purple, so I wouldn't change it if I were you.
If you want to change the colour, do what I did: buy a second-hand tank from eBay and other panels from wherever.
I changed my Street Triple R from dull grey:



to orange and black:



This was achieved with eBay tank, cheap colour panels from Triumph at sale time, and carbon fibre fom CarbonFBR.

It must have been de-catted then because wasn't Bagpuss kind of pink with cream stripes? Still, Emily loved him. 
You could paint it that 'dog dick pink' (Nuclear Red?) that the early Speed Triples came in, keeping it Triumph colours.
