Not sure about the specific condition on this bike, but brake fluid reservoirs (front and rear) typically have a black rubber piece to prevent sloshing/act as a seal - this can make the fluid look darker due to the black rubber being seen through the clean fluid.

How about you post a pic of that rear rotor in it's current state? Thing looks like your back pads were made out of nails with all the deep gouges and grooves in it.

Seller has a sour taste in his mouth but has nobody to blame but himself. Deal was going to go down, but he didn't have the title. And go figure, just the day before, seller tells me to bring cash

Bike looks presentable to me. Got pics of the rotors?

Just trying to have a neutral eye. But hey, you were pretty defensive so I think we know where this is going ;)

In all honesty I think this post is in poor taste. The seller obviously admitted to his faults and doesn't need to have this thrown back in his face. What are you salty about anyway? You saved yourself from buying a bike you would've needed to immediately dump money into - time to move on

675675675 Knock it off. This sounds more like a troll thread.

This thread has run its course.
