The original center steering head nut even when new did not have the best looking finish. Nowadays this part often shows signs of wear and age, sometimes rust. The original part is plated steel of marginal quality.
This nut is made of stainless steel and polished to a chrome-like finish. This is a top quality part, made to exacting tolerances and quite simply, better than new!
