PostSubject: 2- tone Silver Wing Pics?   Thu Dec 04, 2014 1:09 pm

Since I will be replacing the tupperware on my bike anyway (2003 Candy Glory Red), another member to this forum suggested I consider replacing my lower skirts with a silver-color set, perhaps from the 2006 model, to give the bike an interesting 2-tone style (like the newer Goldwings have/had). Has anybody done this to his bike or otherwise has a picture of the finished conversion? I would love to see pics and get your feedback if you would choose a different color , and if the colors match the the other silver components on the bike (like the side step panels and the wing).

Thanks!

These are the only pictures I have of my old 06 that shows the silver skirt.
The color of the skirt is the same as the wheels, forks, final drive and the rear foot peg housing.
If I were doing a makeover I'd change to the silver, I think it sets off the darker colors.

That is really sharp looking. The blue and silver go really well together.

My black 05 has got a silver underskirt (i covered it with black carbon fiber wrap). Is this two tone not standard on certain models? The above posts make it seem like its an add on!

In the states the 2-tone was not introduced until the 2006 model, which is the blue you see above. I don't know if it made much difference on the 2007 model due to it's unusual color. I'm not sure if it was even available after 2007. I know that by 2009 the 2-tone was out.

It would be a good switch on the 2003 red model.

The last of the PC-800 used the Candy Glory Red / Silver color combo.
