I am trying to spiff up my father-in-law old 1983 XR500 with some new Maier Plastics... which color is going to match the original color better? The Red(2) or the Orange (7)


I'm leaning more towards the orange right now but aren't Hondas suppose to be red?

They had a more orange look in 83. I believe the frames orangish color is what you want to match with a nice blue seat.
