    Here is my coke sign as I found it. And the exact same sign in mint condition You can see how the original layer faded off and what was hiding under that top layer is now left. Its very odd but it does happen. Hope this clears up things a little bit.

    After looking closer I would say that is exactly what is going on with it. Either by sun or buffing the top layer of paint is gone. How they applied the decals is first the tank is painted green.

    I gotcha. I fabbed one up enough to get it into the switch without damaging it, but it doesn't turn. Any recent pics of the bike? Ever get new tires or grips?

    I know i get asked at gas stations all the time when are you gonna paint that thing. I'm always like never then they get a puzzled look on there face and i have to explain. Anyone can paint it whatever color they want, but it takes 40 years to look the way it does now.
