@ wayne z Yeah same answer here , I really didnt look that closely.
Maybe tomorrow i should wander down and take a closer look .
If it has been spray painted, it is possible to carefully remove it with light solvents(lacquer thinner, acetone ect) and still retain the original paint and patina underneath. The antique bike restorers do this a lot.
