Posted some of these in my Stumpjumper project thread but thought I would post a couple more :roll: Quite hard to get a good photie and the onza rings letting it down a bit, will try to clean this up a bit too. Was going to get the arms anodised black, but there are a few scrathes and pits too deep to cut out and reckon the ano would show them up.

they'd look great along side my Kooka Stem (pic in gallery), I can take them off your hands if you don't like them :)

I never really thought of buying a worn anodized set and polishing them up, good call leaving them silver.

Yeah I'm really pleased with them, looking even better now with a nice set of grey/red/black egg beaters too.
