Question Painting Kawasaki frame need advice

Who has painted a frame and has a close to OEM color match they can share?

Looking to revive a mid 90's race bike and I need to paint the frame, lower fork legs, and swingarm so there fresh and match in color. Doesnt have to be perfect to oem color but close.

Spray cans or automotive paint, either will do.

My frame was silver from the factory, but I painted it black with semi-gloss engine enamel from Duplicolor. I like the black way more than the silver. Maybe you should change it up a bit? The black enamel I bought cost me like $6 per can and it took I think two cans to do four coats on everything.
