Hi can anyone tell me what the dark grey in this picture is called. It's on the 1983 Gl1100.

Thanks

The Honda parts catalog show the 83 would be elephant gray.

Those are actually decals. The parts list only shows what decal goes with the color of the bike. No color code for the decal itself.

You could take one of the side covers to an Auto paint supply and have them scan it. They may be able to mix matching paint.

The 82 lists only the stripes, no decals, also no color code and not available. The decals are probably only factory applied.
Again, the best thing to do is to have the color scanned and matched.

Hard to tell but I believe my my 83 Aspencade is Nimbus Grey NH125MU. Don't know how to find matching paint but I too would be going to an automotive paint supplier who should be able to match it. As advised be sure to take a side cover or whatever so they can scan it. BTW auto paint not cheap at least here in Canada anymore.

Here is a picture of the bike I have and the paint I'm trying to match. I have been told it was painted using as original goldwing colour. I thought the picture I posted above was a match and that's what I'm trying to figure out. It was originally red so no other way to find out.

In that case I would definitely have it scanned at a paint supplier, also some body shops are able to provide that service. They should come very close. There is no way of knowing if this is OEM paint code or custom colour matched IMHO.
