    I saw that 40 at Pierce H-D in Dekalb. I was visiting family in the Chicago area, and stopped to see Pierce's little museum on the way home to Colorado. Wayne Sr.
    gave me a little tour of his collection of bikes and memorabilia. I told him I had worked at one area H-D dealers back in the 70s and 80s, and he told me he regularly beat the pants off my former employer back in the early 60s offroading on Sportsters. I don't remember him having anything special to say about the 40, though.

    That is a patina bike we did a few years back with original paint tanks, we were doing JWL's 38 at the same time and color matched the two, They were also 4 #s apart on the serial #s, both are on our website. I think that you can't go by a picture on a camera or a computer for a color match, as there are too many variables in shading, lighting, color pigments, etc. We have done a few 38 Hollywood green bikes and they all are close to John Deere green, not exact, but close.

    Thanks to everyone for all of the input this has been enormously helpfull.......so I guess the question I have now would be......If you ordered paint from John Pierce what would you get? I like the color from Carl's website and Matt's paint cans.........

    Chris, it actually is very close to Hollywood Green, at least thatís the closest they could come with the paint machine at the paint shop.

    A modern paint cannot reflect light exactly the same as a vintage formula anyway. The science of spectroscopy is based upon that.

    I guess John Deere Green is OK but you have to paint the wheels Yellow. :-)
