I can almost see the chrome pits popping off the barrels.   :undecided:  I have no idea if they are the original chrome but that's what I am guessing.

I thought he said he had the barrels nicasill plated and didnít use new rings which he regretted. Exhaust looked clean when he started it.  I cringed until he said that, also picturing the chrome starting to make its way to the oil pump.
He seems to be reasonably competent and I donít remember subscribing to his channel but he must have featured a Guzzi or I wouldnít have.

Edit I see Charlie beat me !
