What color paint code?

Postby stitch0852 » Sun Jul 14, 2013 8:40 pm



I bought a 1995 Goldwing Aspencade last weekend. It is the correct year because it has the 20th anniversary badges front and back. Problem is I cannot verify the correct color it is. I have seen several the same color for sale when I was looking but when I search the internet it only shows three colors for the Aspencade for that year and this is definitely NOT one of those three colors. I have attached a pic or two below. The paint code sticker under the gas cap is missing, that is why I am asking.







Both photos were taken at the same time of the same bike. It can look turquoise, teal, blue, depending on the lighting. Most sites I find say the colors for the Aspencade that year were:

Pearl Royal Magenta, R151P
Pearl Sierra Green, G156P
Candy Spectra Red, R176C

This is definitely not one of those.

Any chance it's been repainted by a previous owner??

It does not appear to be repainted. The VIN, when I entered into system for insurance did come up with 95 Aspencade, but unless everything was repainted or replaced, it appears to be what came with it. The paint is also decorated with hand painted pin striping, signed by the artist on the front fender. Seen many painted same color, but not same year. Could it be an early or later 95 that managed to get a different year color?

I checked at www.colorrite.com a blue for the 1995 Aspencade and it is listed as: PB269 Pearl Sparkling Blue or possibly 1994 B142P Pearl Atlantis Blue. I'm going with the 1994 blue. See the colors for 1994 here: http://www.colorrite.com/wizardresults.cfm

Thanks, hoping I never need to know for repairs, but handy to have just in case. I was leaning towards the Pearl Atlas Blue. Saw someone else has the same color bike as their avatar but don't remember where I saw it yesterday.

Thank you for the assist, though. Very much appreciated.
