No idea on what caused the scraping. The bike is 20 years old or more and I just got it a few weeks ago. No stories of damage from the previous original owner other than the shifters. The left stopped clicking and her bike shop of choice put a Tourney on to replace the XT and she was pretty disappointed. She had ridden it on trails all over the USA and moved on to a "gravel bikepacking bike.

anyhow, I reversed the radial spokes so they are heads out. finished up the overhaul and reassembly. Back on the road tomorrow as my commuter this spring.
