seatpost. back in 2000 i bought (new) a bv and when put in my mates boot he lowered the seatpost zig-zag style, all the way down! instead of simply removing from frame. the result was same as yours but stood out more,being black.
Yeah - seat post is a bit annoying - looks like it's only been zig-zagged once, but the scratches are quite deep. Will probably have a go at removing these next.
Just need to attack the rusty spokes on the front wheel, a couple of small tears in the seat and possibly the top tube decal (if I can get a good match for the silver) as there are some scratches along the "Bear Valley" text, and she'll be absolutely mint.
Bike is an 18" so is a little small for me - although I can get away with using a longer seatpost.
Will upload some "after" shots when I've got the last little bits sorted out....
