Pan paint: the saga drags on
You may remember I was getting a little preoccupied with trying to track down what my Panhead's paint is. I thought I'd established it wasn't an OEM Harley shade, until I spotted Two-Pan Dan's bike (top) on the Jockey Journal. The colour looked identical to mine.
I got hold of him (thanks, Jock-E-Shift) and hoped he might reveal what Harley model my unusual shade of green originated with.
But no, turns out it's a GM colour: Emerald Green.
Well, whoever suggested it was a Ford colour (Bullitt Mustang) was closer than most it seems.
