I think the paint deal, gold vs white , was more a VIN than a time thing.

Looks just like the one in Motorcycles Classic magazine May/June 2017 article on Bill Sherman's collection of every year TT

The chrome fork bottoms weren't standard. either, so why expect the tank's colors to be original to that bike?
I would think that bike to be a faulty "restoration job." Do your own research, don't trust someone else's.

Also, I have see Bill Sherman's collection of T120C and T120TT bikes. His '67 TT has the "Bonneville TT Special" decal on the left side cover, and this decal WAS NEVER WAS USED on ANY "TT," as it was intended for the '68 TT bikes, which were
NEVER BUILT.

Moral: Do not trust what you see on anyone else's "restoration."

Wade, as I understand it, originally the '67 650 tanks were initially gold and aubergine, but during the season it was found that harsh sunlight affected the gold, so white was substituted. So, your colours are most likely original.

There is something fishy here.

TT Rider did a lot of research on these bikes three years ago, including tracking down the factory records of the serial numbers issued to these bikes. His list was placed on this site, listing number 556187, early in 2014.

The numbers for '67 TT bikes with '65 frames begin at 53845 and end at 54819.

Those numbers come a long way later from the last bike known to have had the gold-and-aubergine tanks,
as listed above, DU48157.

Without the serial number of the bike in question, we can't know where to start. BUT with this evidence we have at hand,
I do not believe the tank is original to this bike, and it is useless to guess at it.

The chromed lower fork legs are evidence that the bike has been "restored," not original, so it has been tampered with and
should not be trusted to be accurate as to type.

The shade of the Gold on that tank doesn't look anywhere near correct either.
