Howdy all,

Does anyone know if Thruxton hubs are aluminum or steel? I'm a bit of a wheel noob and going to do some polishing.

Also, are the Thruxton rims powder coated or just polished?

Cheers.

I'm pretty sure they're both lacquered aluminum -- so yo need to clean them, not polish them.

The rear hubs are painted alloy (may be a powder coat). The front hubsare lacquered alloy. The newest Thruxtons I've seen have polished Excel alloy rims. Don't know if they are lacquered or not. They were previously fitted with satin finished anodised alloy rims from Behr.
