Airheads on Patrol - Police tanks and color schemes

A while back I acquired a R100 Police tank for my project bike . I'm starting to narrow in on the color scheme for that project and was looking for examples of the various color schemes used by the different police departments that used these tanks. Also, the R100 is just one of many airheads used by police and other organized groups around the world and I wanted to see if any of you had photos to share of those other bikes too.

For reference the R100 Police tank looks like this:







Also, somewhere along the way I misplaced the key/tool for this tank , and was curious if anyone had figured out a good way to lock the glove box on these style of tanks.

Did anyone else notice that's an R65 with an RT fairing.

Good finds guys! Thank you! I guess most were just solid colors, but it's still cool to see the old photos :) Will post up how mine gets painted when it's done
