I wonder if somebody might have a color photo of the original gas tank paint color of a US 1976 Bonneville T140V. And if they might have the USA paint code to duplicate the original paint color. I'm quite sure the paint on this gas tank is not original. Thank you.

Grandpaul can probably point you in the right direction when he sees your post. Wish I could help you out.

NEW COLORS
The Meriden Co-op struggling as they were just to get the assembly line rolling again, very few changes were made unless absolutely necessary to meet pending regs. Hence the color combos remained as they were in 1974 & 1975, for part of the year & Photochromatic Red & Cold White for US & UK markets and also Photochromatic Blue & Cold White as a UK option. But gone was the 650cc T120, after 25 years of service, only the 750cc T140 remained.

That color looks just like the color on my 76 t-140.
