[quote=Airhead Wrangler]Just to clarify: That's "original paint" from a G/S. The ST only came in two stock colors: metallic red and metallic grey.
Thanks for the clarification Airhead Wrangler.
I've had the bike about six months. The PO mentioned giving it the G/S appearance and I'd read the ST only came in metallic red or metallic gray. So the tank is early G/S, pre '84?
I'm assuming the paint is original due to the type of wear adjacent to the seat and no obvious repaint.
Great looking bike you have there. Good story too:
