i had plenty of brass parts.
headbolt covers, various acorn nuts all over the bike, ign switch plate ign. cover fuel cap etc etc..
but nowadays there are to much HD's with brass dodats on them, so i'd took it all off, and started a new brass free built.
some details of how it was:

I do and still they will tarnish after a while. I got to clean my brass soon. 000 steel wool then some neverdul. I think there is a specially spray for brass that acts like a lacquer.
What I was getting at was that if you were ever in the military you know that you have to constantly polish the brass. It is a huge sin to laquer the brass. When we got a new belt buckle it came with laquer and then the absolute first thing you have to do is polish it off. Never ending cycle. When you are on night watch you polish brass all night!
