Gray Perfecto 618?

Hello, I recently purchased a perfecto 618 expecting it to be black. It turned out to be gray. I’ve never heard of one in this color so I’m wondering if anyone can give me any information on this? Thanks!

We did offer a style #518 in Top Grain Cowhide in 1986 in the color grey. I see the jacket has a Perfecto label which represents the Naked Cowhide & Steerhide jackets, so I am not sure if this is a 518. I vaguely remember this motorcycle being made in Grey and possibly the color was offered in the 618 after our catalog was put together, so the color was not listed. Is there a white pocket ticket in one of thepockets that could have the style number on it? Does the Perfecto label have a Motorcycle rider or Bull in the corner? At the bottom of the label is it Schott "BROS" or Schott "NYC"?

Yes it does have a pocket ticket. Also, the Perfecto label says Schott “NYC” And has a motorcycle rider in the top corner. It looks identical to the black Schott 618. I’ve attached photos of both the pocket ticket and the label as well. It really is a cool jacket and is quite unique. I appreciate the feedback too!

Based on the pocket ticket it confirms the style is a Steerhide style 618. The barcode also confirms the jacket was made in 2001, the 5th digit represents the year of production which is a "1". In 1991 we did not use barcodes on our pocket tickets yet, in 2011 our pocketing was a black color, but in 2001 our pocketing was this cream color kasha. I checked our catalog for 2001 but the color Grey was not not in the description of a color, which means this color was added sometime during the year.
