Here's this little device I had been thinking of inventing but.....as usual someone beat me to it.
I've asked a few times, and some folks here have the exact color number for the original (stock) "Blue Smurf" CB1 color....but to help out a bit, here's the Nix Color Match device....enjoy.

May help someone. I know it helped me...I'm color-blind anyway.

Renault Clio sport come in a very similar blue, as do some Vauxhall Corsa models.

I'm not sure the Vauxhall Corsa qualifies. But you can use smurf blue gloves...

they do a lighter blue than that on the vauxhalls

the last time mine was painted was with the renault clio colour.

the light blue colours tend to fade so matching the paint can be a pain, most paint shops will want the bike there anyway to match if you don't have the code.

a lot of the time even if you have the code the car paint schemes likely won't have the mix information for alot of bike colours
