Well, unlike the cool old tractor thread, I actually know what this is, seeing if any of you got a clue. I will say I was amused when I saw it, had to share. If no one guesses, I will post a clue this evening and let everyone know tomorrow.

 

So, what's your guesses???

Yep, tube patch. At about 1 o'clock I saw where you buffed it, that is what gave it away.

I didn't see anything about buffing, but I have put a patch or 2 on tubes in my near 55 years.  (like maybe a few hundred! lol)

Near the top corner you can see where the color is different. When you put in a patch do you buff the area?

Sometimes I do, but I've found using carb cleaner on a rag removes all oxidized surface rubber on tubes, so I rarely buff tubes these days.  Now on a tubeless tire, I do try to smooth the surface when within reach of doing.  I usually use an angle grinder with a very careful touch.

Thanks for guessing, but nope, not a tube patch.

1st clue, much bigger in diameter

Sure looked like one, but maybe my 2nd guess is better.
