Dave, Could the color you are looking for be matador red? It was an orangy/red color.|
----- ORIGINAL MESSAGE FOLLOWS -----
Around 1991, when I was first restoring my "125", wanted her red and was told a 1955 Chevrolet Paint Code was very close to the red used back then (around 1952). I went to a local Fact-o-Bake and picked out the one I thought was best. Bike has held up well over the years but I want to do a little touch up and can't identify the color. Does anyone have information on a 1955 Chevy color that is known to be a close match for the red used on the bikes?
