He didn't buy a kludged together bike did he? Looks like the seller painted over a chrome bag. You must ask why.

That's what it looks like to me. Paint don't stick to Chrome unless it's scuffed or etched. Maybe had a dent in it from fallin' over. Iffin you find putty when sanding the rest of the paint off you'll have your answer. The emblem on the bag is one you can buy at any rally vendor for $2. The tape residue is probably from another Harley/generic badge.

Yep it looks like sticker glue, a product found at any home store called Goof Off works miracles on glue

It is/was pealing powder coat from a bad prep job, or should we say NO prep job. Triggered by heat from the exhaust. The other stuff is sticker gooo and the missing "sticker" was a I support the "Red & White"!
