Default Re: How to repaint a bike frame

More than 50 years ago power tools weren't all over the place. I stripped all the paint off my first Whizzer frame with a dull flexable linolium knife. It sort of flexed around the tubing as I drew it toward myself, like a spoke shave. The fact that I couldn't find a sharp spot on it was to my advantage. It sort of plowed the paint off without nicking the metal. I did the tough spots with emery cloth and progressivly finer sand paper.
