I'm sure any automotive paint store could give you any color you want. I wouldn't go anywhere near a Jag dealership, you might slip on the oil! Plus I don't think they would have paint, they probably go to the paint store...

Best source would be a Jag dealership.

But Raleigh didn't use this colour on their lightweights except maybe for the Raleigh Record ToB frameset of the early '60s. There was a Raleigh Green, similar in hue, that was used on their better roadster models. Bronze Green was the green most associated with the International and that went through more changes in tone and tint than Liz Taylor has had husbands. It's more of a Ford Pinto lime green. Or was at one point.
