What is the difference between a 1983 Aspencade and a 1983 Interstate?

The main difference is that the Aspencade had a full digital dash, while the Interstate retained the old analog tachometer/speedometer layout.

How can I find out exactly what model wing I have? I know it's an 83 GL1100 naked wing but I have interstate badges on the motor that my honda mechanic told me aren't original to my bike. I see that there are 4 different styles I believe; Interstate, Aspencade, Naked wing and I found another that's filed as GL1100 D Goldwing. This is my first bike and I just want to learn everything I can about it. I love it, I'm small and it's super heavy but it's also super fast.
