Thread: Paint Colors 1937 EL

  1. #1

    Default Paint Colors 1937 EL

    Can anyone tell me all available colors for 1937 , including options?

    Granville, this is from 1937 sales literature:
    Three color options. The 1937 Harley-Davidsons are available in a choice of three beautiful color options at no extra charge. One is the ever popular color, Teak Red striped in Black and edged in Gold, the second option is a new rich Bronze Brown striped in Delphine Blue and edged in Yellow, and the third is a snappy combination, Delphine Blue striped in Red and edged in Gold. The Servi-Cars, Package Trucks, and sidecars carry the same three color options as the motorcycle models.

    Pretty sure the MoCo would paint previous years colors at additional cost. If you are getting the bike AMCA judged (which you probably aren't) you have to stick with the above colors. Any deviations require documentation.

    I found my 1937 wiring diagram. If you still need it, call me.

    Then you have to justify where early and mid are. Photos in The Enthusiast magazine suggest that the colored oil tanks were only on very early machines.

    that may have been a pre production advertisement but it's not accurate for actual production.
