from what I understand ALL bikes are finished and delivered, in the same colour by the manufacturers (bronze green for early war, brown for mid-war and then olive drab for late war). Seems some debate on the precise colour .. but from what I understand it varies by manufacturer and paint batch.
I don't believe the Navy or the RAF, then repainted their machines.
