3. Find a suitable spot on a suitable wall or door.
4. Position the sign thoughtfully using strips of masking tape if necessary.
5. Carefully mount the sign with nails or screws taking utmost care not to damage any part of the design (Tip: Use fibre washers both in front and behind the sign if you're the particular type or have an obsessive-compulsive tendency).
6. Open a beer, light a fag, hug your partner or favourite pet.
7. Stand back and enjoy the sign and do this as often as time and convenience allows.

That's all that's required. The sign should still be fit for purpose long after you're gone, and we hope that's a long time into the future.

"The motorcycle which influenced design for years?" That ain't exactly how we would have phrased it.
We might have said: "The most evocative name in the history of motorcycling". Or perhaps: "The Origin of the Species." Or simply: "Edward Turner's Greatest Triumph".
Regardless, when the 500cc Speed Twin was launched in 1938, the motorcycle world gasped in delight. Edward Turner's 500cc wonderbike brought the age of the British single to an end and established the parallel twin architecture whose time had finally come.
Soon BSA, Norton, Ariel, AMC and others were following the leader, and the rest is history. You can read all about it in Sump's Triumph Speed Twin buyers guide.
Like Triumph itself, this piece of metal art is for everyman. Yes, you can get snobbish about it and tell us that it ain't real art. It's just an image painted on a sheet of tin. And then you can tell us that the Mona Lisa is just a painted tart of strip of canvass.
Meaning that beauty, as ever, is in the eye of the beholder. And we're happy to behold this particular piece of art and hang it in the Sump garage.
The size is a generous 300mm x 410mm, which is roughly the size of two A4 sheets of paper. The image is 1,400 dpi, which is way better than most, if not all, of the lesser quality stuff on the market. And the edges are rolled to help preserve those delicate finger nails.
Also, these Triumph 5T Speed Twin signs are printed direct to metal in the traditional way.
They're not the cheap copies you often see on the web. These are the real deal at the right price.
Will you like one when you see it? We think so. If we didn't, we wouldn't be flogging 'em.
We package these signs as well as we reasonably can, and we despatch as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours of ordering, and very rarely longer than 2-3 days if stock has run out and needs to be re-supplied.
Either way, we'll keep you posted. And if for any reason we can't supply your sign, we'll tell you without unnecessary delay and will refund your money in full.
And remember this if you will:
