Looked like Hammerite or something had been applied to both dropouts and the MC1?

Just been to see this, silver Hammerite is covering the fact the serial numbers have been removed on the frame and forks, stolen at some point?

The seat tube has two cracks one either side of the key hole, both about 5mm.

Heavy corrosion in bottom bracket area aft of seat tube.

Some parts past it, some ok, MC1 also painted in Hammerite. Bb bearings need replacing headset good.

Real shame as paint was still very bright, been in a shed for 10 years apparently and no dents.

I didn't buy it, it's hot!
