Usually blued when new, that's also easy to redo if working out of the scrap pile. Gun blue does have uses on motorcycle sometimes if just for looks.
Looks like you rivetted on the bags also. BMW bags can be a real pita for that, twin walls in some parts with a space in between and if you poprivet may squeeze and they'll crack. Had to do that and ended up filling the void space with expansion foam just so I could rivet without more crackings.
Someone just gave me one of them kits to fill gaps & cracks. That's industrial strenght CA and 2 little jars of black and grey powders to use as a filler then set with the CA.
