    I searched for over a year trying to find Alpine White and Flash Green for my 93 GSPD. Found a place or two in the UK that say they have touch-up kits still available, but I didn't want to go thru the shipping hassles. I ended up going to a local CarQuest parts store that also has a paint department. They scanned the paint and made 2 ounces for $8. Match is perfect to my eye. Not sure if the paint department in a CarQuest is normal or just a local pairing, but you should be able to find someone in your area that provides such a service for automotive paints.

    Is BMW cage paint the same as BMW motorrad paint?

    If so...

    Max BMW lists the parts codes for the various paint colors, but they won't ship paints and other hazardous chemicals - but - with a part number, you could get it from your local dealer... http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fiche/PartsFiche.aspx

    Believe me, I've contacted many dealers. The touch-up is no longer made for my bike. The paint code does not show-up in any paint dealers computer. After all that searching it took 15 minutes and $8 at the paint counter to have my paint

    Somebody is missing a good business opportunity on bike paint as those guys are TOO! high. I can see bike paints being more than non niche cage paint but they are way out of kilter & own that market.
