I looked at a bike a few days ago and the condition of the thing really nixed the sale. It wasn't rusty or dinged up. It had this kind of film on it and the areas of the bike around the axl and rings just looked strange. The brake pads were all cracked and dirty never seen anything like it. Then I remembered seeing cars and rvs on the road around Reno covered in this tan colored dust. The were common back from that dessert where the burning man gig is held
The bike was clean like you clean without disassembly but it was kinda cooked best way I can explain it like it had been under dirt or dust and cooked instead of underwater rusty or some other more common condition
I know there is a ton of junk bikes that get used there and left.
Anyone have any experience with bikes that have been exposed to that?
I'm second guessing myself because the bike was half price of what it would normally sell for
