Pepper Red Paint

I recently bought a 1957 FLH. I am going to paint it the correct Pepper Red. I'm trying to get paint at the local auto body supply store but they all want a chip to scan. I don't have a chip. Does anyone have a part # they can give me besides Harleys #?
Thank You

Re: Pepper Red Paint

You can order it from Antique Cycle Supply. They have just about any Harley color made from '04 through '76.

Re: Pepper Red Paint

Antique Cycle provided the Pepper Red paint for my wife's 57 FLH. Initially, I didn't care much for the new " Hugger Orange"
and black paint job, but it has grown on me. It looks great in the sun.

Re: Pepper Red Paint

i used the dupont paint code supplied in palmer's book and gave it to the paint supply store.

after viewing original bikes i believe it is a perfect match. mine is the one in the foreground.

Re: Pepper Red Paint

That look like one of the pair of pepper red bikes that has been touring the country. They were refugee's from a junk yard, in Iran if I remember correctly. They had consecutive serial numbers.
