I had heard years ago that BSA had 30 odd shades of black.
Have you got any blacker?
Cheers

henry ford said you can have any colour you like so long as its black the reason being it was the fastest drying colour to get them of the production line

'It is likely that Ford was being somewhat playful in making that remark. Model Ts were, in fact, offered in a choice of colour early in the car's lifetime around 1908, and again after 1926. The statement was true when Ford's biography was published, in 1922, and when he was cutting costs by using a type of quick-drying paint that was only then available in black.

He was experimenting with the assembly line, at the time, and only fast-drying black paint allowed for "full-speed" assembly.'
