Panhead and colour painting

#1

Restoring my PAN 52, I need some help about the choice of original colours for my HYDRA model 1952.
I'd prefered a bi-color tone, but is it correct for this bike (heretic choice ?) ?
Thank for your help. I add that a red/ivory colour should work well for me... :wink:

:) Thanks for your answer. Now I'm looking for the "persian red" or "brilliant black" colour reference. These are the two tones I prefer. Just a remarque : the red one is a little too dark for me. But authenticity research is to pay this price :D :D
I wonder if in the reality, owners changed these tones as soon as they owned their bikes. Many pictures agreed this way, don't they ?

Thanks for your help, really. :wink:

The page of the site indicates a reference fo this tone. OK. But where can I find this article ? I've red DUPONT PAINTING is offering this colour. Can you indicate me if it correct?
