I need Schwinn Sierra Brown- Can somebody help?

I could have sworn that one of you mentioned that there was a source for vintage Schwinn paints....

Bicycle rack casualty- I need to touch up numerous spots on the '70 Supersport and was hoping to find an exact match to its "Sierra Brown"

Any rec's for a source? (FWIW, in most spots on the bike the beautiful root-beer hues w/ gold flake are still pretty darn nice when the sun hits it!)

Thanks in Advance

My LBS is closing shop and he's been trying to pawn cans of old Schwinn paint off on me. I'll run down and see what he's got........BRB!

Thanks Kpug, but only if it's not too far out of the way for you.
I seem to remember several of the members mentioning somebody from Schwinn Forums who had paint that was an exact match and I thought that that person might have had a website or something....

I'd be interested in enough to do touch-ups with, too.

Schwinn forums point to Pete at Hyper-formance for schwinn colors, but I don't know what he has.

http://www.hyper-formance.com/paints.htm

or you can ask over at the schwinn forums:

Bam!
Not the best score but I did manage to get a 1/2 used can of Schwinn approved sierra brown. Feels like there is some goods inside still.
Neat can.....Looks like it's from the 70's. There were some other cans without the color listed on the label with missing caps and a few touch up pens as well. Sadly there weren't any of the other colors people requested.
Bigwoo......Please PM me. Oh and the can says 1969!

Hyperformance has some colors but not, as of last year, Sierra Brown. I have been searching for some time for touch up paint for my Sierra Brown 69 Super Sport with no luck. If you find a source please post their information.
