V 35 Bergmeister fuel tank with the original paintwork in the base colour „Capri“ with painted sides

The painting is a matter of taste, of course, but holds its share in the good looking of the Bergmeister.

On the first models in the base colour “Capri” the flat tank had painted sides, not the chrome plated ones of the later versions.

The decorative lines were corresponding to the design of the KR 26, with red stripes, bordered with thin golden lines on the sides and thin red lines outlining the top area.

A completely painted, non-chrome plated tank in the original colours “Azur” or “Black” is not known yet, but this must not automatically mean that there were none.
