Hi Jay

That will be Royal Red for a 1960s Super Rocket available at RS paints http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en/shop-colour-schemes.php?makeid=135&modelid=3363&prod-year=1960
If you check their website it shows colours for earlier models.

Jim's correct for the Home offerings. However, there were some differences for the exports.

Been hear before for a 1955 plunger flash.

I found Vauxhall Sovereign Gold form the local paint factor to be the best match and RS to be expensive.

I was very impressed with Halfords Venison spray cans.

Hi LJ  -- yes I like  Halfords Gloss Black paint but by Venison do you mean a colour?

BTW the first of your pics opens up to a link to a site with a bad rep (the belly one)
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco
