I can’t be certain that mine were original but they were certainly satin black.

thanks mate, these MX bikes are very schmick, display only, but will be able to be started if needed. So the hubs will be powdercoated and new spokes laced onto the NOS rims..Ill grab some pics if Im allowed

I posted this photo of my NOS IT/YZ hubs a few weeks back:



They are indeed satin black, but perhaps on the glossy side of satin when new !
