    "I thought I was wrong once", Ray!

    But as the old saying goes: "I was mistaken".

    As an attempt to get back to topic, I still haven't a tank striping scheme that I can document for my 3.5g shifter tanks other than from a coffee-table book. (Apologies in advance,...)
    I know the public would accept just about anything, but I hate to offend a judge. Well maybe not.

    So many restorations have the striping curve exaggerated on the 5g tanks, that its hard to trust modern representations for the 3.5s either.
    I fear the '64 scheme (attached) was used into the '65 production, however its an assumption it would be on civvy machines as well.

    A fellow posted his '65 red/birch tanks years ago with the '64 scheme, but I unfortunately only saved it as a thumbnail, and forgot his name as well.

    Nonetheless, any genuine measurements of the striping widths would be tremendously appreciated by my painter. I have two personal '65 machines to complete before I can retire.
    Many thanks in advance,

    ....Cotten

    Only picture that I have Tom. Very close to a reversed 1963 but lower to clear the shift gate.

    Hey Cotten!

    Hah in this case - I wasn't mistaken, I was wrong :-) I know the covers are anodized aluminum and gave the wrong message, thanks for catching it.

    Can't help on 3.5 tanks. I do have orginal paint and a direct copy from them on my resto of the set of the 5's.

    All the 65s and early 66 primary covers that I've seen have the plug, Harley put out a service bulletin telling dealers to quit greasing the compensator mid 66 and they got rid of the plugs late 66 and up.
