I'm not sure what in the that is. . .but I really dig the use of copper! Did you have them plated locally, and if so, can you PM me the info? If they're powdercoated, that look good. Bike looks tough as nails, I like your style!

Thanks. Yeah, its copper plating on all those parts. I tried to go the powdercoat route, but it never even got close to what the copper plating did. I'll PM you info.
