Don't know the cross-reference, but just in case you didn't know, here is PPG's code:
PPG 905952

Good luck finding it. I use DuPont products for all my automotive / bike painting and I have yet to be able to do a cross match with a Harley / PPG code. PPG is very protective of the Harley colors; I would imagine it's a licensing type deal. I've gone as far as making phone calls up the ladder at DuPont and the brickwall I keep hitting is "there is no cross-over to our paints". So far up to this point I have gone the route of using the "camera" method and have the computer do the appropriate mix in the DuPont Chromabase system. So far they have all been great matches.

Why not just buy PPG's paint then? Go to Paintscratch.com and order just about Any year/Any color. The only color I know, that you Can Not get, From Anyone, Including HARLEY, is the 100th Annv. colors.

For me the reason I use DuPont is because there are no local paint supply houses that deliver or for that matter are within a close driving distance. For that reason all my "in-stock" supplies (mixers, reducers, hardeners, etc.) are DuPont. The PPG supplier that was fairly close to me closed their doors. I tried to get some information from the next closest supplier in regards to the Harley colors for a job I was doing but it was like pulling teeth almost as if they didn't want to sell to a shop; who knows. The last job I did the customer bought and supplied the paint from a Harley dealer. They had no idea as far as the mix ratios or any information I needed. In fact the paint he was sold was a standard single-stage primer, single-stage urethane paint utilizing a clear topcoat. The job I did using the DuPont Chromabase basecoat / clearcoat setup I feel gave a deeper shine than I would've received from the Harley paint....but then who knows? When I had my shop down in FL I used PPG exclusively and really liked their product.

Here's a couple of pics from the fairing I did in Black Cherry
