Bmw r100s paint job

Just purchased a 1978 BMW R100S in need of a little TLC. Runs good, needs cosmetics. The stock paint job was a nice Red Smoke Metallic/ Red Metallic 2 tone. Anyone know of a good paint shop that can re-create the original paint job. I`d like to restore to original if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help.

MAX BMW Motorcycles Heritage Service Center but I'm sure you can find a custom, low rider or chopper paint shop near you.

+1 on Holt. They have been painting BMWs longer than most people on this site have been riding them.
