Looks terrific!

That said, I didn't particularly mind it in it's before state, either;).

Personally I like the way they look with the original patina. I wouldn’t paint them and then add fake patina, sounds silly to me...

I’m experimenting with the bars to see if what I do is I interesting or not, I can always resort back to bare metal. These parts are so bare metal and pitted that I either go with that look, replace or patina something else, which is what I’m going to do. For me not all bare metal is interesting, some is just butt ugly.

Here are the bars with flat grey, metallic, flat grey, then metallic again. Then I rough them up a bit.

I cut the paint sheen with 1000. Grit and steel wool. Now off to the rust department!

Excellent job. Very cool frame . I really like the way the seat post ( or mast depending who you are talking to) curves parallel to the rear fender.
