Would that be from a 2001 gold wing?

F.Y.I. Pretty sure my 2008 was that color too.
Just wondering, I have an '08 and, the paint code numbers etc. are listed as Caliente Red, not Illusion Red. Are they the same exact color? If so, why would Honda call them Illusion Red in one year and, Caliente Red in another year?

Illusion Red & Caliente Red aren’t close. Very different reds.

Well,
This is why I asked. He stated his " '08 " was the same color as the OP's parts which, are *Illusion Red". And as stated, my '08 is Caliente Red. Did they make TWO different reds in '08?

No, someone said their 2008 was "close to" that color, which for the color impaired, it may appear to be, but is not. 2001 and 2002 were "Illusion Red", which depending on the lighting (or lack thereof) can appear almost orange(ish) or very red. Such is the "illusion".
According to the "fact sheet" I have, 2008 had two red colors available.
Hope the owner of the parts can find a home for them. They have been available for quite a while and look to be in great shape. As much as I love spare parts I'm hoping I don't ever need them.

I had an '01IR and on a cloudy day as you walked around the bike it took on a rust color but in bright sunlight I got many many compliments on how it sparkled.

Yeah, I re-read that original answer and it said "close" and I should have re-worded my answer to that one, but, I didn't. Sorry about that. And, I was not aware that Honda offered two different reds in the same year of '08.
