Hi everyone. I found a great deal on a 2013 Heritage Softail. The bike has 44miles. The person that is selling it was diagnosed with cancer right after he bought it. I like everything about the bike except..he had a magnetic tank bag sitting on it (I guess since he bought it new) I lifted the bag off the tank and it left two yellow spots right below the magnets. The bike is white. My husband tell me it is just cosmetic and get over it cause i am basically getting a brand new bike but cosmetics are important to ME. I still havent bought it and im afraid to lose out on a great buy.
I would love imput from you guys as to what i can do to remove the stains. Or any advise at all

Welcome from Kentucky. Can't advise you regarding the yellow spots--I would be asking someone at a body shop.

Oh, and if you buy the bike I wouldn't be riding it at highway speeds if it still has the original tires.

+1 on the tires . . . even if the tires look brand new, seven years can take its toll (dry rot). Blowing a tire on a bike would not make for a pleasant experience!

It can be buffed out by a reliable detail guy, or have him turn it into his insurance and you pay the deductible. I did that on my current Road King. 200.00 and I got a new tank and fender.

Greetings from the left coast. All three oils, tires and some fine polishing compound for minor scratches. Original battery, check build date on it, get a new one if so. Good Luck.
