    That looks to be simply natural aluminum that was polished at some point. No paint, just some polish, possibly some wax and lots of elbow grease.

    Polish it until you like the shine and then use a product like Shark Hide on it.

    With no coating it will become dull very soon, the Shark Hide will need to be re-applied periodically, but it's not hard to do.

    If you polish it use simichrome, by far the best product I have found.
