Galli certainly had lots of gold (and other color) anodized parts. I have a pair of gold ano rims.

Other gold anodized parts I have include:

Mavic rims Zeus chainrings EDCO headsets Mavic stem Suntour Superbe Pro shifters Zipp hubs spoke nipples

At the Westminster swap a couple of years ago I saw a gold anodized Cinelli track bar and stem combo that was way cool. Matched on a track frame to a gold Campy BMX crank maybe? Shoulda bought it.

I've seen quite a few other gold odds and ends over the years. I wonder how much was "factory" and how much was "after market".

And then of course the mountain bike world went ano-crazy. Did you know that purple anodized hub bodies make great Christmas ornaments? Oops....better not go there!
