I bet you know more about that than me but it sure looks black to me. Not as dark as the black paint on the bike but darker than most of what I call grey. As long as it fits I think I can paint it to match close enough, maybe..396FISH, , ,the '93 Interstate came from the factory with ONE color, , ,Cosmopolitan Grey (NH159L). Is the black needed for a different bike, , or is it a grey pocket painted black???
