I believe they were all black, but most often undercoated.

My tank is now black so I should be fine with the color the inside was really bad as if the prior sealant was pealing off
Any other confirmation on the tank color ?
Thanks , Joe Parsons

The tank in my early Speedster was black also.

I am finishing my tank for my Speedster as well. Any other feedback on this question? My tank appears to have been under coated, but no way to know if it was factory. Anyone have any factory photos? I thought they were just raw, but I also saw a 62 or later factory photo and they appear black.
