Have you talked to the owner of that bike? From the looks of it, and I'm guessing since its hard to tell from pics, that paint job is probably custom, which means there's no paint code for it. They probably did a black basecoat followed by a micro-flake mid layer or crushed glass, then clearcoated.

I would say that that is either a brown or a brown kandy....Perhaps look at the HOK colour book or mayber PPG's VIBRANCE book, the PPG stuff is carried by almost any lordco...
