I tried searching and know it must be up here.



What are Duplicolor # for Engine, Frame, and the bike color for 1983 silver/ gray SilverWing Standered.



Thank You,

Ron

I don't know because Duplicolor's little color finder application doesn't go back that far. But here's a suggestion: if you're painting the entire bike then you shouldn't really care if the match is *exact*. Look at 2010 colors and find something similar so you'll be happy. Then you should be able to get an exact match to your new paint job for many years to come.



Just a thought...

My feelings exactly Jay.



I see so many people trying to match or keep the bike in absolute original, like they are entering it in a

Concours bike show for winning a trophy.



Love the quote in motorcycle ads for "Original tires and paint".



Holy crap its a 30 year old bike and still has the original tires?



Not a selling feature for me.

Not doimg a full repaint just touch up on a runner. The Turbo guys had paint # that matched the original close you could paint over some of the ruff spots and with wax it looked good from 5 feet.

Here's your color names:



Nimbus Gray Metallic with Achilles Black Metallic



Now, there is a 2008 Honda Pilot color also called Nimbus Gray Metallic (NH 705M) but I don't know if it's the same exact color. The Achilles Black Metallic code is NH124MU and it was also used on '84 and '85 Goldwing 1200s.



I hope this helps.
