With that paint scheme, I could totally look the other way as to that being a middle-weight bike! Beautiful!

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Hell a little more black accenting to that & I'd full on dig the red on black scheme. Not even much; some peel & stick 'striping down the guard lines & maybe top & side perimeter on the rack.

A Good comfortable seat & Ride it like ya stole it Twice ;)

Cool piece!

The 1956 Deluxe Hornet was the last straight bar balloon Hornet and in 1957 that model was a middleweight and it went to the cantilever frame. First year for that and the Opal Red with Black trim color option. The 1958's followed the 1957's color options and the bolt on stand came back.

Nice so it’s the correct color then? I was just wondering cause I haven’t seen too many of them.

Yes Sir, that was a color option offered in 57 and 58. In 1956 the Deluxe two tone was black with red trim.
