To the best of my recollection these are painted silver metallic.

The ones that came off of my black 61 Hawk are a gray color not unlike your primer. Also the lower air deflector was gray which incidentally also matches the original steel rims.

(But the $64 question is 'how' to replace the factory rivets when the pot metal holes are crap)....

I drilled a small hole in it's place after I filed down the rivet on the chrome surround.
