1983 Honda Silverwing Interstate Silver and Black (Silverwing)
Last updated May 3, 2009
I bought this bike last year when gas prices were getting high. I love having it. The bike only had 21,000 miles on it and I have put many miles on riding in the countryside. It is a real classic because it was the only year ever made of this style.
The GL650I'83 Silver Wing Interstate was sold in 1983 in one of two color schemes: Candy Wineberry Red with Bramble Red Metallic or Nimbus Gray Metallic with Achilles Black Metallic. The stripes on the red bike were red, but they were black on the gray bike. The "HONDA", "SILVERWING", and "INTERSTATE" emblems were gold. The bike had the modular seat, trunk, and saddlebag system like the 1981 GL500I.
