83 Interstate colour

Post by ciniod » Mon Dec 03, 2018 3:55 am



Hi All,
OK, I've taken the plunge and moved up from my '77 CB550 to an '83 Interstate. The Goldwing I have just purchased is a recent US import (I live in Scotland).
I have a question regarding colour...
My bike is white with gold features. I do not see this in any lists for colour schemes. Is this a genuine colour combo?
Thanks

Welcome to the forum.
The 83i came in black. wineberry and regal brown.
There is a list of gw paint codes in the Manuals section here.

I have seen a few white GL1100 but were probably painted at some point.

The gold, if decals/vinyl, were offered in the accessories aftermarket and Honda also offered them as "stripes" for a short limited time...long discontinued...

Thanks for the info. If it wasn't white originally then I'll look to see if I can see any traces of what may have been the original colour on it.
