Re: How to remove paint?
Sometimes Canadian tire has Jobmate heat guns for about 10 bux when they are on sale, they will remove stickers and most paints.
But keep your heat gun away from your carburetor, it will melt plastic parts. (don't ask how I know that)
Or you can use corrosive paint stripper. (or not)
Or a propane blow torch.
I love my Motor Bicycle, I love Beer, I'll try not to like them both at once.
