    Sorry Rody, '55s never came in two tone. the standard colors were all solids. The options were Holywood Green which included color matched oil tank, outer primary and rear chainguard, or two color patterns which were tanks of the first color and fenders of second solid color. No panels though or two tone, solid fenders and tank.

    There was a HD factory "Parade" two tone paint scheme that was available for a number of years as a special order only. Commonly used on Police bikes but could be had for the asking by a buyer back in the day for perhaps a small upcharge . Attached is a photo of a 54 and two photos of different 56's with this factory paint. It was generally available at least from 1954 (perhaps earlier) until the 60's and perhaps beyond. Not common, but a known available pattern.
