In 1964 they were available in solids, checkerboards, irridescent, and stripes. See the Reliable Cycles catalog page:

http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1225372&a=11663429&f=0

and look for page 25 "GEM bar wrap"

if that link doesn't work, go to

http://www.photopoint.com

visit album "swampmtn@siscom.net"

goto "bike parts catalogue"

and look for page 25.
