  • 1946 Knucklehead Grey Paint numbers?

    I'm looking to paint my 46 sheet metal Grey but can't find any info in my Bruce Palmer 2nd edition book. Anyone know the paint numbers?

    Also, does anyone know how the badges should look in early 46 if the tanks are gray? I've seen some that were black with cream stripes and red HD lettering.

    Thanks

        I have an original photograph from Swim Harley Davidson with Mrs. Swim sitting on a brand new 1946 Knuckle. I think the bike is skyway blue but it could be gray. The photos is in black and white. The tank badges are white with black stripes and lettering. I will try to get a photo posted up soon.

          Which one of these bikes do you think is Harley "GRY" paint code for 1946? Man, I hope it's the dark gray one..

            From what I have seen it is the lighter one. Seen what are purported to be OP bikes and they are the lighter shade. Look at the one on the cover of Palmers book and i think you will agree. You can paint it what ever color or shade you want but if you want it judged it needs to be as close to correct as possible.

              Thanks. I think you're right on about it being the lighter one.
