All ya need is a soldering iron. Call me, I'll walk ya thru it. I agree with your dad. We had a 1957 B model Hummer. The tank and both fenders were Tangerine Orange. It was offered for the 56 165, but according to data was not offered for the 57 B , but this also was an original bike and we re-painted it the color it came. I believe you could order a new bike with the year prior to it's color as the Factory still had paint left from the previous year model.

Also, I forgot that I wanted to ask about something that has
been bugging me. After looking at as much info as I can
find, I don't see anywhere that the '59 ST was offered in
black with white trim, whether standard or an option. I do
see that the '58 ST was offered in black with white trim and
white fenders. Do I have an undocumented color option? My
dad insists that it was never painted.

Got a little further with the wiring today. However, ran
into something that has be stumped. Neither the headlight
switch or the horn button have a simple way to disconnect
the wires from them.

What is the standard method for rewiring these two pieces?
Splice the new wire to the old? (Don't really like that
option) Buy a new horn button and new headlight switch? Or,
is there a way that I'm not seeing to disconnect the wires?
