The coachwork of the bike is totally unique and reflects the camouflage pattern of the Spitfire with a nod to the roundels of the RAF. The bike is a nod to the Hinckley Hosiery Company, the same firm that sponsored the build of Spitfire PV202. During PV202’s restoration, some of the Aluminium was donated to the builder of the bike and used on the bike.
