    Default Special color Pan 1965

    I can't find any concrete information about the color of my FLH 1965. Someone say me it is a commemorative color. I think it's original paint because I find a motorcycle ad showing this color and a photo of another bike like mine.
    I know nothing about this color. Have you informations ?. Do you know something about that ?
    Thank you very much for helping me.

    Carlos, I almost made mention of the color on your motorcycle in your new member post. When I bought my first 65 in 1979, there were always a few to look over at major motorcycle events in my area. One in particular had the color option yours has, it was a well ridden one owner original paint bike. There was also a very low mileage machine in same color that showed up at the Redwing, MN National Hillclimb every year. The experts will tell you the color was not available, but I am convinced it was real.

    I can't say about the paint but noticed in the paragraph under the Rt. fuel tank shot the writer mistakes the generator for a starter motor. I know it's trivial but I'm feeling grumpy today.

    It's not a big deal...but that's a 62. That's a 63 behind it though....at least the paint scheme is.

    I have seen gold electra glides before. I have a 1965 sales brochure with motorcycle in Hi-FI red only. Brochure says Finish: Metallic finish in choice of Hi-FI colors, or baked enamel. The HI-Fi colors were offered in the 1960's in red ,blue, . green , turquoise and purple. Had a silver base coat then color . I have other brochures that say others colors available on special order
