I don't believe the "actual crankcases" have ever been polished alloy on the Hinckley Bonnevilles as they came out of the factory. Prior to using the current black finish, they were painted (powder coated?) an off silver-grey colour. As has been said, the side covers (clutch, alternator and gearbox sprocket) have been lacquered and raw satin alloy, chrome and black. My 05 T100 has the silver-grey crankcases, cylinder head and cam cover, with chromed side covers and a black engine block. I believe the T100s were still like that until the more recent EFI models.
Aubergine & White 05 T100 (865cc) with numerous mods.
