Saddlebags set colour on a GL1100

Postby Mul » Tue Oct 04, 2016 11:53 am



Hello, I´m new on this forum.
I want to buy a used saddldebag and topbox set to match the fairing on my GL1100 from 1981.
I just wonder if there is any difference in the brown-red colour nuances from the models 1981 - 1983
Does anyone know?
Thanks, Stijn

There's something else you have to consider: red dyes are among the most unstable when it comes to UV exposure (i.e. they fade faster than any other dye). So the amount of time the bike has spent out in the sun over the past 30+ years will change the color of red/brown body parts.

Thank you for the quick answer Wing admin; but my question was ment as whether there are different red-brown colour codes between the models from 81 to 83.
So my bike is from1981 and if i should buy the saddlebags and topbox on the internet and have them sent to me, from a `83 model , which also has a red-brown colour, is there a risk for that the colour is different other than from fading in sunlight?
Thanks!
