Help with color...

I'm needing to get some touch up paint for my Schwinn Sky Blue Sprint.

I want to use auto touch up paint aplicators like those found at Auto Zone, etc.

What would be the name/ number of the correct color?

Best regards,

As has been suggested before - many times - fingernail polish works very well as touch-up paint. But you need to swallow your macho and go to a women's warpaint shop. If you can't bring the bike inside with you, get a paint chip or the best color photo you can. There you will find someone to help you with the color. They have a very large range, and you likely will get very close. Or hit it right on the head.

Wear a sun-bonnet with plastic fruit on it.
