right then, besides the typical upper rust zones it was just light "surface rust" which is just a con in my opinion i dont think there is such a thing as surface rust it comes from the metal, its not overspray ffs
but it werent bad i scuffed it mostly gone applied some rattle can self etching primer
i have bought plenty of forks with bad rust inside looking fine outside
so i at the minimum have a reall good look inside

While you are totally correct that rust can appear throughout a piece of metal (particularly if that metal contains recycled materials) Rust is the process of Iron oxidation so rust will always happen first where the environment is right for it. And yes; surface rust is deadly to a surface that needs to be free of rust such as on a hydraulic cylinder.

best luck selling yer old bike bits.
