Default 1979 Honda

I am 15 years old and just was given a 1979 Honda XL 250S, and i am trying to restore it back to original as possible. seeing that they do not make the paint anymore does anyone know of good replacement paint? it is Tahitian Red. i know it was used for many other years, but Honda never made the paint.
Thanks -SCOTT

If you take the tank and turn it over and get a clean area you can get about any paint sales store like NAPA to match it. See if you can find someone with patience if you want the exact match. PPG stores generally have knowledgeable people, but I don't like their products for longevity.

They have it. Click on the "MX Parts", then "Honda" and scroll down to "spray paint".
