Is this tank paint original ?

Postby chrispyduck » Tue Dec 18, 2018 6:17 pm

Just trying to determine if this tank paint is original. The previous owner believed it to be however the striping does not look altogether correct. Could it be worn with age. All opinions will be greatly appreciated.
BTW i am considering a refresh of the paint anyway :D

Many thanks

Chris

my unrestored 79(april 78) tank...it may have changed later but I doubt it, I've never seen one like yours...edit:yeah I have seen one like that, it was a repaint from the UK...
I ordered the decals for my 2nd tank and they came longer than required and I needed to trim them to match my oem tank decals otherwise they would've been the same as yours.

I have never seen a honda original with that stripe all the way up like yours. There should be around 3/8” gap.
