That'll be quite difficult, it can have been repainted x times. Best would be to take a painted part with you and visit some paint specialist to get him to make a mix that may match closely.

And welcome to the forum ...and thanks for the nice presentation in Bikes, Pictures & Members  ;)

Hi.
Not sure where you are based, but if in the Uk these are the Bike Paint experts - http://www.rsbikepaint.com
Web site identifies the original colour and you can buy touch up, and or aersols/spray paint.

Hi fella, welcome to the forum.  I always use (hmg) down in collyhurst, manchester

Their paint is top quality and they still sell cellulose paint, although it is now called industrial cellulose. More importantly they are spot on at matching paint. Top blokes. All the best. Chicago

Preferred location: somewhere warm and dry.

Yes I will vouch for HMG too....... I've used them a few times now. They tried to help me with my last paint job, even though it was not their field of expertise. They even tried to get an industrial sized 'sample' from a customer which would have been big enough for my whole bike. Good people!..... They will also put your paint into an aerosol for you, which is great if you have no spraying equipment.
