Go to any drug store and you will find an enormous variety of colors and have a pretty good chance of finding a match to any bike. I always bring my fork into the store with me, get lot's of strange looks, then proceed to find the right color. If the first store dosn't have a good match go on to a different store (not CVS to another CVS; but from a CVS to Rite-Aid, etc.)"

Mark sez: Also don't forget those paint filled felt tip Markers by Testors-often found in hobby stores in an increasing array of colors. They dry flat too.
