The 28 sales brochure clearly shows painted cases. My 28 Deluxe has bright (not "balboa") blue cases to match the bright (not "balboa") blue paint that Doc Patt applied. I'll trust he knew what he was doing.

Good morning - I would like to question the forum users about the correct engine case finish for a 1928 Deluxe. Some think they should be painted blue, and I have also heard reports that they should be natural. I finished two '28 Hendersons this summer, and one owner wanted natural and the other wanted blue paint. You may have seen the blue painted one - it was Steve MacDonald's Cannonball bike. Bikes look great both ways, but what is the correct finish? Thanks.
