    hey guys, restoring this one for a client in Ohio..he cannot remember the exact decals or paint scheme on it. The frame and fenders (although cut) is original paint; but the tank & guard are not. any help identifying the paint scheme would be helpful..thinking it might would of had the plane design on the tank?? cant seem to find a pic of an original bike online..thanks

    Fenders look like they might be original paint...pretty good looking pinstripes on them, including the braces.
