    Is there a place or does anyone know of the color combinations Monark used in the early 50s?? I've got a Super Deluxe that was house painted "Monark Blue" for lack of a better description. When I pulled the cowling and tank, it was red, deep red, almost maroon. The decals (what's left of them) look white, but I think there might have been a second color, like an accent. On the rear fender (original, the pin striping is white and what looks like silver?? Anybody got any ideas?? Thanks

    I can't seem to find my Monark book at the moment. But there was a two tone Maroon and red, solid red, white, black, light blue, dark blue, olive green, medium green, chartreuse/light green, and black & red. The decals were kind of an off white, with gold accents and stripes. -Adam
