    Need opinions from smarter people than me

    Looking at purchasing an old bike that is aluminum. It is not a bike that I can see beforehand. It is an aluminum frame, but has this blemish. Any thoughts?Need opinions from smarter people than me-paint1.jpg

    I'd ask two things.

    1, do they know *how* it got like that? Errant contact with a heat gun is far different than some chemical getting spilled on it and left there.

    2, if they don't, is the same paint damage present, ANYWHERE else on the entire bike?

    Could be as silly as being too close to an exhaust pipe on a rear car carrier, or something that you just don't want to touch at all.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!
