Paint code for 1937 bronze brown

Does anybody know the Paint code for 1937 bronze brown or it's modern equivalent?

There is no H-D paint code. Only part numbers which will do you no good. To my knowledge there is no modern match for that color. You can make a phone call to Antique Cycle Supply and they will ship any quantity of it you need directly to your door in single or dual stage paint. Originals paints were single stage.

Check with Carl's Cycle Supply, Aberdeen, SD. They recently had one painted that color. I believe they have an original paint tank for reference. Good Luck!

I did a 37 EL last year in bronze brown and can help you out as I matched it to a NOS original paint 37 gas tank. Give me a call at 605-225-5702 during the week. This bike is on the cover of the American Classics 2009 calender available through your local Harley dealer as well. If you want a color match that is correct, go through John Pierce at Color Wright, he advertises in the AMCA magazine and his colors are correct, unlike the other options out there.
