    Shipping a few today. It looks like I have exactly three sets for each style and finish. As long as I'm showing stock on raw, I can have them polished or powder-coated. Anodizing is a one time deal for right now, which I have three of each type out now for this process. If you want a set, I'm low already, so I'd grab a set sooner then later. as I'm not sure when I can do another run; https://www.guzzitech.com/store/product/gt-rx-cnc-v7-retro-valve-cover-adapters-head-guards/ - only those orders with CNC spacers and valve covers will come with a pair of gaskets and stainless hardware.

    Pretty sure one of those anodized are mine! Thank you Todd for going above and beyond where other V7 part fabricators/vendors fall seriously short. I mean the V7 has little to no aftermarket support compared to say Triumph, so your dedication to this niche is very appreciated. Thumbs up man!

    I agree after thinking thru. I will fill the cover and eagle with red lacquer fill stick. Bought on eBay for $6 del.

    I should have the OEM covers on Monday. I'll throw a set on with the raw metal finish and snap some pics to post... or if Bob beats me to it, great.

    I have used Alum Blast from Eastwood's before to touch up my v11 engine with good results. Matched perfectly.

    The 2013+ motors are a bronzey-gold, and the 2016's a little darker. I tried to match the fins with powder-coating on the big bore cylinders I do, without much luck. If anyone finds anything, do let us know.

    Looks great . Is that thin white line running along the bottom just a reflection or a part of the machining process
