Damn Shame (De Rosa Content)

I've been talking to a gentleman who has a 1983 De Rosa SL in his garage with pantographed Campagnolo Super Record.

I was very excited to work out a deal with him.....until i saw pictures

Judging by the remnant paint, it appears to have had a painted fork crown to start (or maybe just the top of the crown chromed?). I wonder what caused that localized corrosion. If the price is right & the rest of the bike is in good shape, I would just sand & repaint just the fork crown red to match. Call it a bargaining leverage.
