This Swedish 1930 H3 was on Car & Classic recently.
Said to be original paint on a chrome tank as the deluxe model.

If you zoom in on a smallish pic, the outer line looks to be black also ?
Have fun with your resto !

Ron,

thanks for the respone. The bike on photo is nearly in the same condition as mine.
The panel looks complete black (no extra lining)   and a seperate black  lining around the tanks side.
