After the Great Santini got done waving his magic wand over them, I no longer had a rusty hunk of cast steel. I had a perfectly exposed hunk of cast steel. It had to get painted or I'd be lookin' at a light brown patina in no time...

Yer looking at all original parts {Except the bearings}
At least the ones that were on the bike when I got it.
I was thinking they were stainless. There ain't a speck o' cereal on 'em.
What was on the original?

All "Loopframe" Guzzis except the V700 and early ("A-series") Ambassadors had stainless steel spokes and nickel-plated brass nipples.
