So I'm assuming that the '82 of the OP's was also #227. But any good car painter can match the color that's on the frame. My paint shop is owned by a friend of mine, and he's been painting cars for over 25 years, so I can get him to match anything!
As a note, if you do find a match, don't be surprised if a PINT costs you $80-$100!
I bought a pint of RED to match a Honda motorcycle and it was $135!
Of course there's always PPG's Harlequinne colors that runs $1,100.00/Qt!

Send me the frame to paint, and the "Celeste" color match is included!
