66 spitfire Mk2 - from the factory, is the headlight mounting brackets supposed to be painted black or chrome? the majority of pics show chrome, but a few are black. looking at a spitfire, and they are black (along with the whole bike being repainted black)

ALL TRUE; SOME VARIATION DID OCCUR BUT IF YOU ARE WORKING WITH A BITSA OR A PILE OF PARTS YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECREATE A BIKE THAT FOLLOWS "TYPICAL" FACTORY PRODUCTION. SO WHY NOT DO IT?

For what it is worth, I have sales brochures for all spitfire years, and they show black for 66, and chrome for 67 and 68.
