"Bud Ekins" models:

These models confuse me.
Elkins was primarily an off road rider when he wasnt doing stunt work. Surely a more off road focussed couple of bikes would have been more in fitting with Elkins memory.

Maybe but apparently they think: let's do a special paintwork, call it a limited edition and make extra money

I agree, more off-road may've been more fitting?
But, as seen in the pics, it's about the paintwork:

Still, a great Triumph rider, dealer, personality to be memorialized.
