    I am having some custom pinstripe work done on my 08 Softail FLSTC. the stock paint is the Candyapple sunburst (did I get that right?) and the stock pinstripe around tank and fenders is a reddish orange over a linen-tan color (two stripes). Was wondering if we had a known color name or code for that? My father is doing the work and he is very hesitant to just try to guess at the mix match. I told him I am fine with anything close, but he restores ol 50's hot rods and won't settle for that. Any help is appreciated. right now he has my cow bell and is 80 miles away from my bike so he only has a picture to go by to eyeball match...Thanks.

    Well, pop was able to match the color by eye near perfect. Hope the image comes through of the finished horn cover.

    Now the plan is to incorporate that design (half cut down the middle) on each side of the top o the tank with the top of the horn cover design being the top of the tank...if that makes any sense...lol
