If your talking about the CWP {Crown/Wheel - Pinion} I think it is bronze. These gears are matched for backlash and MUST be paired to each other. You cannot just 'swap' one gear for another.

Hi, crownwheel and pinion are made of special hardened steel and are matching pair with numbers. I have new original in stock, in several ratios. Standard 8/35.
Special track 7/34 and special for road cruising 9/35. All original new.
