    How much for the dirt? Good thing that alloy doesn't rust.

    Can you give the 3 digit date code on the back and confirm it's a Fuchs - not a repro?

    As the paint goes thin, I like the drip marks from the dipping paint process. G

    In the same vein here's a chain guide bolt that I've had for years.
    And a pic of my little Mahle Man squeeze toy.

    Just thought people would like to know.

    I love the machining on that chain guide bolt,,(mesmerized actually) and if I had a Mahle Man Squeeze toy like that it would be deformed by now awaiting the next "griping" post.
