Go to a automotive parts store with your bike and ask them if you can bring it into the paint isle. Find a touch-up paint that matches. If you can only come close, go with a darker color. I used spray Dupli-Color Royal Blue (DSFM340) on my Royale II.
Believe it or not, I actually contacted their customer service department over this exact question about five years ago, and was told that the current company is & has been historically & financially separate from Fuji/ National since about 1999 (it is in effect a wholly new company that bought the old marque), and that they have no access to any prior records regarding the older frames or their details.
I suggest taking the frame into a custom auto or chopper shop in your area, finding out who they'd recommend for a custom paint match, then dropping by there & ponying up the $50 or $60 to have it done. That's pretty much what I did when I repainted my LeMond, but it was totally worth it since my paint an exact match for the original flame red.
