Thanks Max, it is good reading. I was specificly interested to know what the standard finish is on the airbox cover, fenders and radiator covers.

electrolytic passivation is a better description than general term "anodization". HD to my knowledge does not call out a specification.

It is the prefered surface treatment to aluminum parts prior to paint or powdercoating, and I find it comical that Lux and his imaginary nation ride around on bikes straight from the factory prepped to be painted.

Some people just cannot comprehend perfection even when it's placed directly in front of them

Lux still trying to preach that everyone should be unique by doing everything the same way he does, which is keeping his bike stock...

Anodized skins without blemish are becoming a rare sight. Embrace the moment. It's the clean , fresh appearance of aluminum that makes the VR-lines come alive. Yet, the anodized VR1130cc was not birthed from a vagina, but shaped and molded in clay by the sculptors hands. Even the frame & rake is different from todays VR1250cc, because they were hydro-formed aluminum.
