To be honest Bob, the frame looks like its original colour. Currently, it isn’t in my possession, as Comet last notified me of them preparing it for shipment, but i did study the pictures as if I were trying to identify a fake Da Vinci painting.
The scrapes, what few that are there, seem to fade from bare silver to red, with no colour changes between. Even inside the tubes appear to be the same red as the entire chassis.
The only reason that maybe comet thought it was a wildkart, which seems like a very novice mistake, is that the water pump clamp is a wildkart part… however, the frame design seems to match none of the wildkart lines and to top that, as stated before, a wildkart employee told me that is not their serial number
