H-D paint options, 1964

Hey guys, anyone seen this paint combo from the factory ? I've never seen the primary color of birch white.
Could this be original paint ?

My 62 has original factory paint on tanks HiFi Blue and Birch white, however the fenders are house of color blue over silver. The only way to tell the difference is the defects on the tanks a dent on each the size of a dime. The tanks were removed from the bike in 1968 and put back on this year. You can still see the Parkerizing inside the tanks.

It looks to be a reverse paint scheme, which was offered every so often, but not in 64.
That being said, never say never when it comes to H-D paint jobs. Yes, it could be factory paint.

Hi Mike, no, not thinking about a re-paint. A buddy o'mine asked me about that '64 and I thought I'd put
it to the experts here.
I'd like to get some bubble bag guards though. ; )
