    Default Paint code + source for a 1982 GS1100E

    I've got a 1982 GS1100E that needs a paint job. Tank, side covers, front fender, rear tailpiece. It's the champagne (silver/gold) color, not sure what they call it How do I find the color code and where can I find the paint for the job?
    Thanks for your help!

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    Thanks for the info Chuck! I took a look at those sites but it doesn't look like they have the paint for my bike. The search continues...

    Champaign was a popular color in those days, I'd bet you could find an automotive color that would be pretty close, doesn't sound like you're trying to match anything.

    Not ALL conspiracy theories are false. If it's on the radio, TV AND the internet (with pictures) then it's true. If it shows up in print, it always will be. www.birdsarentreal.com

    Google “2007 Tahoe gold mist metallic” I always thought this color was close.
