`81 GL1100 Clarification of Color

I am at my wits end! :rage:

 

I have searched so many web sites trying to see a color pallet for these two colors. I decided to restore my 1100 and the original color (as I was told by different experts) is Candy Muse Red! Really!?!?!

 

I purchased a new front fender, tank and rear fender; wasn't able to find new side covers. I have the Interstate trunk (black) and suitcase style saggle bags (black) they are very rare... I want to match them to the rest of the bike... I took them to a body shop and had them repainted... I gave him the Honda paint code R104CU - which is supposed to be Candy Muse Red... I went to pick them up and was BLOWN AWAY! They were RED! They looked like my candy apple red car that I had when I was younger...

 

Hope this helps... I'll try to describe the color of the tank and fenders... to me it looks like a really deep purple - not a red shade! Trying to put some rationale to the color name... wineberry is a deep wine and there are too many different types of berries... raspberry/cranberry (red), blackberry/blueberry/boysenberry (purplish)...

 

I can't find anything that give me a description of a "MUSE" color... I know that there are a lot of 'vintage' bikes on this site... have read a lot of the posts - y'all are great and helped this GW newbie!

 

Really could use some help with this one - please :wave:

From what I can find, it depends on the year of the pieces. In 80 and 81, the color was muse red, in 82 and 83 it was wineberry. Now, I'm not sure of the difference in the actual color, but seeing as how they have different name, I'm sure there is a difference in the color as well. If the faux tank hasn't been redone, you can look under the gas flap, and there should be a sticker with the paint code there.

 

1980 Interstate= Candy Muse Red R104CU

1981 Interstate= Candy Muse Red R104CU

1982 Interstate= Candy Wineberry Red R114CU

1983 Interstate= Candy Wineberry Red R114CU

 

I hope this helps.

plskthompson - I replaced the faux tank but no sticker is under the lid. I have the info and my screen has a ratio of 512K colors... i found the candy muse and wineberry color (ColorRite) but to my eye the two chips look the same. I have tried to find a paint code # on my parts but came up with nothing... appreciate the help! I have called a couple hona dealers hoping to find someone that has some history w/ GWs but most of the mechanics / parts people can't explain the difference between the two... still hoping that someone that owns a `81 or `82 that still has the original color... maybe they can explain the difference in the two colors... thanks again for the response - deeply appreciated!

AspectOne... thanks for the info, but I have done some extensive searching and what I really need to see (in color)... is someone that has a good pic of their bike and for them to tell me if they have the Candy Muse Red and the Candy Wineberry Red... spent over $700 to have my saddlebags and trunk repainted and they ordered the '81 Candy Muse Red and it is red and mine looks more like a really deep red - almost a Merlow wine with a tad of purple in it... the body shop won't do anything about it - they did what I told them - unless they got the wrong paint shipped to them... I can''t fight a battle unless I know that I have my facts straight... does this make sense??? :baffled:

 

Maybe this is harder for me to explain than I had thought! :rage: :surrender:

 

thanks again
