I just purchased a De Rosa Primato off of Ebay and it arrived with a dent in the top tube. I am attempting to recover some of the loss through the seller and wanted to ask opinions on how much this damage devalues the bike or what the bike is now worth. I've posted some photos of the damage. The frame had several cosmetic issues (which were disclosed by the seller) with paint and decals but that is the only structural defect. The bike has full Chorus groupset with look pedals newish tires.
Also, has anyone had an experience with repairing a bike like this? Who do you recommend to do this repair and what it would cost (ball park) for repair and finishing?
Thanks ahead of time!
