Does anyone know where gold colored trim & accessories can be purchased? My buddy has a black wing that would look super sharp trimmed out in gold.

What year?

I had an 89 Goldwing (like the 88 pictured) and it had gold plated chrome all across. Looked sharp, but let me tell you it was a bitch to stop it from oxidizing. It could not handle any weather at all (granted that was in mid 90s, maybe they are making it better now).

Black would look sharp in gold. Just a lot of rubbing down, and you can not rub it too much or the gold will come off.

I have some gold on my 93 and have been looking for more for 3 years. No luck. Yes it does look great with black. I have to gently apply and buff with Turtle wax.

Can always have your accessories chrome plated in gold these days.
