Does anybody know modern paint codes that match the colors for teen Excelsiors? I am painting my 1916 bike this summer.
There are the following colors:

I was just looking at an orig. paint 12 Excel. the other day. I found it interesting that each woman or man (HD) that was doing the pin stripeing could dictate what ever thickness they felt like doing at the time. I was looking at approx. 1mm thick stripes. So maybe Elizabeth felt like doing some fine line work that day?
Sorry can't help w/ paint code numbers.

All of the blue pinstripes that I have seen on early X's are narrow. I don't know if it is a millimeter, but it is pretty skinny. The red and gold striping on the edges of the red and maroon panels is wider.
Maybe each bike is different, I'm not sure. I don't know how many people were employed doing the stripes, but there could have been more than a few.
If anybody knows the "correct" size and locations of the stripes, please let me know.
