Lost pocket door gl1500

I recently lost my rh side pocket door for my 1989 GL 1500, I am having problems locating another door as mine is the bison brown coloured door and not the grey ones that are on e bay.
My other problem is that the lost door as well as the rest of the bike has burled walnut on the door and I cannot find any to match .
I originally bought the wooden kit some years ago from a guy in USA who now is no longer around.
Any ideas please.

That is a problem with adding things like that, they will go out of production when the model they fit changes.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I do see that kind of stuff come up on ebay, craigslist ever so often but basically you are screwed. I do remember seeing shelf paper the kind you stick on cabinet shelves that looks a lot like "wood" might get you close..but would probably have to be clear coated and even then replaced every few years

You can get unfinished veneer at many wood stores, and make your own replacement. Cuts with scissors or an exacto knife then sand and varnish. Mount with double sided tape and Bob's your uncle.

I have made bits like this from wood. in your case (burl). They were door panels on a Volvo semi. You might try a local wood worker and see if he or she has a can do attitude. I often tackle pats like this as entertainment.
