You're in Australia, correct?  Hopefully someone will know what the correct color was there as the US model may have been different.

Nevermind.  It's too early...  might be getting people mixed up  If you have a US model there is a paint color section where people have found matches and the Tech Library should have the color name.  Or places like Marble Motors sell paint for $$$

If you don't have a US bike you might need to find out what color it was.

Mark is correct with the AT3 colour being slightly different in different markets .
The blue colour used in Australasia was Marine Blue .
My US brochures don't give a colour for US market blue .
I have no information on European Market .
This question cropped up once before , ages ago , and someone else popped up with US blue name .
At that stage I wasn't aware of the variation , but had noted US AT3's did appear to be a darker shade of Blue .

Brigade Blue is the US market colour .
As I posted earlier , the Blue colour used in AT3's sold in Australia and New Zealand was Marine Blue .

Marine Blue was also the colour of the UK 1976 RD400C - to the eye it is bordering on turquoise.

As you would expect, various discussions on paint matching on the UK based aircooledrd forum and I have attached a post from July of this year on this subject.
