Bill,
Only the cylinder is painted, any good Hi-Temp aluminum paint will work just fine, I use VHT. The engine cases, covers (both clutch and generator) and the head are bare natural aluminum. All the hardware and levers are cadmium plated. Clean up the aluminum stuff, paint the cylinder, get some new hardware, and you're done.
