    l ran across what appears to be a late 60's Special in ok shape. It is finished in black. The owner thinks it's original but l don't remember ever seeing Specials from that era in any color but red. If it's a refin, it was done a long time ago based on the wear. Anyone know what colors early Specials were offered in?

    They definitely had them in Polaris White, but I'm not sure how many other custom colors were made on late '60s Specials.
