Need paint for orange Centurion Super Lemans

I have what I believe to be a 1976 Centurion Super LeMans. Its orange, but has a number of paint chips/scratches that Id like to try and touch up. Does anyone know where I can get some original touch up paint for the bike? I have a small bottle of paint that must have come with the bike, but it is dried up.
Thanks for any help.

IIRC the colour is a pearl or a frost. if this is correct it makes it difficult for touchups. a good source for small containers of pearl or frost finishes is nail varnish. a nail tech might be willing to assist in colour matching as they frequently do what is called in their field "frankening" - the mixing of colours to reach a desired hue.
