I like it.

Stripping and polishing the cranks, or getting the silver ones, would make it a 10/10

I'm very happy with a 9/10, or even a 2/10 as long as it does what it does in this case. Not up to modding a touring bike component when I can put that money on a cold lager and a pizza somewhere in Montana instead :)
