I'm not sure what you want but maybe I can point you in some sort of direction. The 55ST only came in solid colors. If you're looking for correct, go with solid in a correct color for a 55ST and use the proper decal. If you're not stuck on originality check out Lawrence Willis' 56ST (same as a 55ST) on the members page. It's a great looking alternative to stock that looks like it was designed by the factory. It's also in your color scheme.
Good luck,

Are there certain patterns that should be used when painting a panel on a gas tank, or is that up to the painter. (I know we can do whatever I want, but I am wanting to stay correct to the 55st). I was thinking of just a long oval that was a little larger than the decal. This way the tank would mostly be the Pepper red with a long birch white oval to highlight the decal.
