I believe that's Tiger's Copper paint which is a powdercoat...

Take your bike into the nearest auto parts store and find the closest match.
Went to a auto body paint supplier for my last non auto paint. They sell by auto application so they will pull out some books and let you make the choice. They give little input as they don't want liability if it doesn't match.

Have you tried a hobby store? I've seen tons of different types of paint pens at hobby stores that may do it. Maybe you can try mixing paint to match the color?
I was hoping I could just get the exact color some how / way. I hate trying to color match / mix - I haven't had any luck thus far especially w/ metallic colors.

Try Testors gloss enamel. Model airplane paint from the hobby store/WalMart, etc.

The gloss black and gloss red colors match perfectly. Not sure about the others, but I bet they will be real close....
