    It is and it even has all the markings on them , plus the recite from 2000. Lol I thought he saved the old bearings , after I read the recite, I never looked at them untill today, I figured I would get the model numbers, but I saw the bearings were still stapled in the original packaging, so they were spares. I figure I might as well use them. I'll clean up the old stiff and save that for emergencies!

    If they haven't rusted, use them.

    Sounds like you struck gold, if they are actually American made. I hope the new seals were included too.

    It's just oil on the rims it wipes off.
